Garden Centre's - aren't they great !



It's the weekend and they are forecasting snow for many areas of the UK, so please keep warm and safe. In fact many other countries have snow so the same goes wherever you live ...

Last weekend, I enjoyed a stroll around a local garden centre with the grand-children!
We had a great time and jokingly called it the three 'G's ...
Grand-children, Grandma and Garden! LOL!

I wasn't going to post a recipe today but then thought readers may like to see this one,
it's delicious, although celeriac is an odd looking vegetable!
Great Grub Celeriac - find it here

Enjoy your weekend

All the best Jan

I love celeriac, and always have a root in my veggie compartment. It's snowing hard here in Germany, and I have decided to stay home and keep warm. Have a nice weekend, hugs, Valerie

I called at the garden centre yesterday for a mooch around, they're great places to have a look around even if there's nothing you actually want. We've had snow flurries during the night and throughout the morning but they haven't been heavy. We're forecast more snow over the weekend, I just hope it doesn't hang around.

Garden centres will be getting crowded this time of year. Got to get your veggie plants ready for the spring planting. :) Nice photo with your grandchildren, a priceless moment.

I love garden centres too, there's always something interesting.
I've done a couple of recipes with celeriac since I saw some recipes you posted. I had never tried it before then, but it's not too easy to find them in the supermarkets here in Perth.

We've had a couple of flurries but nothing has settled.
Have a great warming weekend!

At this time of year when everything is brown and drab a garden center is THE place to be.

It has been a very cold winter and even now we have below normal temps also, The flowers looked beautiful, I surely can't wait for spring and all the lovely flowers to start blooming! Sure hope this will be the last of the snow for you. They are still saying we may get a few flurries this week but no sticking hopefully, have a great weekend!
Was so neat seeing you with the grandkids!
thanks for the birthday wishes :)

En los jardines, disfrutan los niños y las personas mayores, aunque es en la primavera donde manifiesta su máximo esplendor.

I had to go to several garden centres last week - I needed to replant my front garden that had died in the summer drought. Yes, they are lovely places but oh my goodness, expensive!!! Never mind, the garden is all done now so I'm happy.

I really enjoy walking around garden centers too. Nice you are able to enjoy it with your grandchildren.
It is snowing here again as I type this.

People used to tell me they enjoyed visiting the garden centre - my husbands profession of degrees.

Mary Kirkland said...

Aww those are great pictures. Always nice to spend time with the grandkids.

Maybe would be nice to go to garden, if you have a lots of snow (as we have..).
Now the climate is messy because snow is there where it is not usually.

Debbie said...

♥♥♥ Such lovely photos of you three spending some good time together!
Yes, garden centres are great. Together with book shops, they are the only places where spending money is meaningful. :)
Have a happy new week! xx
