Unusual plants, Pretty combos

This greenhouse business is fairly new, but it is quickly becoming a favorite. Each spring it burgeons with glowing flowers in the greenhouse, vegetables and perennials on the outdoor tables, and large numbers of very fine hanging baskets and flowering containers.

I always make a trip there, and they often have unusual offerings attractively displayed according to color and harmony. The pots of plants are marked clearly as to whether the preference is for sun or shade. Distinctly homey signs and welcoming helpfulness from the owners and their staff makes it a place where you know care is taken with every customer and every sale.

This is another place that you can create as daytrip destination. On your way, where Route 42 turns south out of the Village of Plain City is "Der Dutchman" restaurant. A popular place to eat homestyle cooking and buy baked goods; it also houses a gift shop that will have you looking and wishing you could carry home the many things so creatively displayed on two floors worth of shopping. I recommend their broasted chicken and the homemade ice cream. Or drop down just a short ways south on Rt. 42 to Dutch Kitchen just to eat, owned by the same company, but a bit more intimate and you can get the noodles with chicken (that was always my favorite dish). The cyclists love to stop there; this area is a big draw for cyclists because the ground is so flat.

A personal note I posted last year, briefly describing my experience with Yonie's Greenhaus. I should mention that you can buy a good selection of vegetable garden plants, including heirloom tomatoes, herbs, and strawberry plants. There are many larger size perennials, some roses and shrubs for sale. Potting soil is available, too.

Enjoy the drive through the country side, don't be in too much of a hurry to get home and plant. :)

    your beautiful gardens.

    all evoked by remembrance
    of chicken noodles, just like
    Proust's little teacake.
