McAuliffe's Valley Nursery sits flat on the valley floor, and has forty acres of growing fields.
This is the Snohomish Valley.
After the cold front earlier this week, there is new snow in the mountains.
Each one of these table displays of perennials was a work of art, color coordinated and a study in plant combinations.
The kitty was friendly too.
The nursery is beautifully landscaped, featuring trees and shrubs grown here and for sale.
Sometimes a leaky radiator is a good thing.
The remains of a red bud tree carpet the ground below it.
While this nursery has been around for a while, I think it was recently updated. In doing so, someone had great fun with rocks and bricks and mortar.
Even the table of salad greens was beautiful.
We bought a few plants, of course, and loved the views in the valley.
We did stop for a short time at Molbaks in Woodinville, which is quite large, and also quite lovely, but I stopped taking photos by then, since we were in a hurry to get back through the city to beat the rush hour traffic. Besides, it is famous and doesn't need my blog space. It is worth a trip of it's own.
