A Visit to The Detroit Garden Works

I recently visited the beautiful Detroit Garden Works. A garden shop of distinction, with beautiful sculpture, wonderful plant combinations and tons of amazing treats for a passionate gardner to drool over.

Here are a few photos from my visit:

These large concrete fruits greet you as you pass through the gate. They would look so cool in my garden!

So many beautiful antique urns to choose from. Some are French antiques.

I even had the opportunity to meet the owner Deborah Silver. The shop lives up to its tagline: Where Passionate Gardeners come to shop!
