FSO My weakness.

My Weakness

When driving through town where does the car pull 

you? Is there someplace you just can't resist 


A favorite shop, store, house....? 

Kings Garden Barns are actually garden centres aka plant nurseries.  There are seven of these barns in Auckland, very distinctive by it's yellow colour.
Garden Centres are some of my favourite places. Even if I don't buy anything, I like to do my window shopping the way other people do in shopping malls. I am a country girl at heart. Even when the water engineer was a professor, and I was a faculty wife, I was more comfortable digging with dirt under my nails than spending time doing a manicure.

And coming home with a few pots and potting mix and plants of course. 

Except of late, the computer has taken over this weakness and I enjoy the plants on the screen. I still pop in Kings Garden Barn and buy a few plants every now and then. Old habits die hard.

I agree with you about garden centers, they are so relaxing. Some of the big ones over here have classical music playing while you shop. Nice post.

Garden centres are one of my favourite places to visit but I forgot about them when doing my weaknesses!
When I visit my daughter the first thing we all do is troop off to their garden centre and drool over all the plants we'd like.

Garden centres are a lovely weakness, Ann. I don't have room for another plant, no matter how small, so have to avoid them. Nice flower shots!

I almost did my post on the garden centers. My daughter is complaining that I buy plants, then travel and leave her to water...... Is the pink flower a hydrengia?
