Rock PaintingWhen we lived in California, we lived in a small town in what we referred to as the high desert. The high desert is actually in the Mojave Desert and the name of that town is Ridgecrest. And since you have probably never heard of it, I’ve included this nice little map to show you where it is. Read more….

greenhouse

A very special greenhouse and nursery by the name of Lurgans lies in Orrstown, Pennsylvania, approximately 50 miles away from where we live. And I love to go there!

You might say “50 miles just to go to a nursery, aren’t there any closer?”  Oh yes, there are lots closer, but none nearly so special and so full of beautiful flowers as Lurgans.  You could say it’s well known in these parts!  Everyone that loves gardening loves Lurgans, myself included!
