Garden Center Road Trip in Wisconsin
Monches Farm oozes charm
A short jaunt along winding, blacktop roads brings me to one of my all-time favorites: Monches Farm, 15 miles northeast of Oconomowoc.
The grounds ooze charm, overflowing with classical sculptures, urns and terra-cotta pots. Brick-lined paths lead to fields of potted plants.
Fancy chickens, including one that looks like it's wearing a large Russian fur hat, squawk near a stone coop. Elegant home decor fills a gift shop. Display beds and mature trees ring a farmhouse.
