The ladies met us at our house at 9:00 this morning and we piled into our minivan. First stop - Swanson's.
Swanson's is famous for it's all season container plantings. The Koi in the cafe pavilion were looking for a nibble.
Real reindeer were in residence.
This train display used real plants.
OK, good start. Lots of fresh, natural, seasonal displays.
The greeters at the door.
Wight's is known for it's dozens of theme trees, with ornaments galore on display and for sale.
There is so much here it's bedazzling, over whelming. Ornaments kept falling into my basket.
But hunger called us out of Christmas Land and into a near by Olive Garden restaurant for lunch. After dining at a leisurely pace, we headed for our third stop, Molbak's.
I loved the planting right outside the entry.
Are you bedazzled yet?
We had a great time today. Some of us bought lots, some of us next to nothing. Just looking is free. Go out and enjoy the season!
