Holiday Open House and the “Photo of the Week”

Next weekend is our Holiday Open House. To prepare for it, we’ve been busy as elves decking the greenhouse and unwrapping all kinds of pretty holiday ornaments and baubles.

We hope you’ll stop by on Saturday or Sunday, and join us as we make merry. We’ll have all sorts of tasty nibbles and Marcy will be baking up some fresh cakes. Not to mention our annual tradition of delicious sipping chocolate made locally by Chocolate Necessities. A treat that’s both naughty and nice!



We’re excited to say that Stephanie Burgess will be making an appearance at our open house on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 1pm. We’re currently unwrapping a new shipment of gorgeously designed Art Poles. She’s also bringing some of her original giclee prints. She’ll be signing poles, as well as discussing her art and inspirations. Don’t miss the chance to meet this dynamic and inspiring local artist!

As a bonus for folks who stop by on Saturday, homegrown musical duo Blue Star will be playing from 12 – 4pm in the greenhouse. Come by and enjoy some stellar local music.

Art Show and Signing this Saturday at Garden Spot

This week we’re all a-twitter here at Garden Spot Nursery. Local Artist Stephanie Burgess will be here on Saturday to sign her beautiful peace poles.

Stephanie’s peace poles are a new product for us this year. They are powerful pieces of garden art that promote a message of peace, family and appreciation for the earth.

Originally, Stephanie sold her one-of-a-kind poles at local farmer’s market and galleries. This year, she had the opportunity to work with local company Licensing Liasons LLC and Studio M to have reproductions of her poles manufactured right here in the United States.

The quality of these pieces is in the detail and sturdy construction. We’ve displayed them in our outdoor nursery for the past few weeks to demonstrate their ruggedness.

This Saturday, Stephanie will be here from 11am to 1pm to sign her poles and also talk about her art. She’ll have some of her original pieces for sale as well. We’ll have cheeses, fruit and summery drinks for everyone who stops by. This is a great opportunity to meet this dynamic local artist and see her innovative work!
