Best Dutch Licorice Selection in California? Lazy Dog Ice cream shop – no kidding!

Lazy Dog Ice Cream Shop : Famous for Dutch Licorice: 20+ Kinds
Two years ago I posted on Lazy Dog’s dutch licorice selection as being the best in Grass Valley.  It seems that during the last two years they have expanded their offerings and now offer – on site over 20 types of dutch licorice. (In addition they also offer fresh chocolates, ice cream,  gelato etc). So in the interest of Displaced Dutch people that like salt licorice  – please find an update…

Lazy Dog shop in Grass Valley (front window view) has more than ice cream to offer: Anise Bears, double salt coins, licorice cats, licorice trucks and those little sweet salty cubes are all on the shelves.

Yesterday,  (Halloween)  I stopped by and this is what i found:

Spring Hill Cottage and Gardens got SNOW  this week! This is a big storm that is winding its way across the country leaving a blanket of snow on mountains, deserts, lakes, rivers and forests.  Here it was big  enough to make it look pretty, and little enough to not have to shovel. In Grass Valley it normally melts off in a few days, so we’ve learned its ok to leave alone.  I took some pictures of the new gardens and orchard with their very first snow dusting. Cottage Garden  in first snow photos are kind of like a baby’s first steps I think. The parents think its wonderful and the rest of the world in just kind of indulgent. So thank you for indulging me…
