Garden Center Road Trip in Wisconsin
A lazy drive and a country-cute setting
Part of my fun is a lazy drive along a wooded country road where trees unfurl shimmering new leaves and I inhale the scent of freshly turned earth. My ideal garden center (sometimes called a nursery or farm) has a country-cute setting, display gardens and unusual plants. It's even better if there's a chicken scratching for grit, a friendly dog that comes over to sniff my feet and a style as charming as I'd like my own yard to have.
