Garden Scenes in the Foothills around Grass Valley

Too hot to garden today!  Thought I share a few local garden scenes to make you smile while you wilt in the heat , or when you come back from your escape to a cool body of water today. These 5 photos were all taken at the same place… does anyone recognize the location?IMG_3746 IMG_3733 IMG_3728  IMG_3725 IMG_3719

Decorated port-a-potty in the garden? See this one at a nearby fruit stand!

Garden Fruit stand on the way to Chico

We stopped at this family garden fruit stand on the way to Chico. Fresh herbs and flowers just add to the charm

 

When you are into gardening, you keep an eye out for what other people do, what’s  cute and what’s just a great idea..  We stopped by this  roadside fruit stand on the way to Chico yesterday, and found a great selection of fruit, a cute garden shed, and the prettiest port-o- let ( port-a-potty) that i Had ever seen. I had to take photos and share the experience with you!

Here’s the port- a potty!

When you open the door of the port- a- potty you see an spotlesslessly clean interior – decorated  with country charm  see photo below:

a) main view – straight shot  from front to back- colorful wall hangings, dried herbs along the windows, butterfly stickers, and signage all feels welcoming!

B)  Looking to the right  from front, you see the detail of the sign, fresh and dried herbs, and additional decorations – note how CLEAN it is!!DSCN2503

 

 

C) somehow they were able to rig a foot pump with running water – for me that’s huge since I’m a fanatic about washing hands after the restroom and prior to eating. Also a choice of soaps, fully stocked paper towels and again cute and CLEAN!!  DSCN2504

 

Go find Tony’s on rt 99 to Chico,  buy some fresh fruit and  even if you don’t use their public restroom – go look at it!  see Tony’s Fruit Stand for their fruits and veggies!
