I Love a Good Garden Center.

I love a good garden center.
To me that means it is charming and has paths, looks landscaped not like plants for sale on a bunch of big box store shelves and they don't care if I wander. 
I like atmosphere and ideas I can use.
You just know it when you come around the corner and spot one of these special places.

A couple of weeks ago I was visiting my parents 
and my mom directed me to the cutest garden center ever, Liberty Landscapes.

If you are anywhere near Bedford VA it is worth the trip. 
(The D-Day Memorial is in Bedford and it's amazing. 
Make the trip and see it, then go buy a plant. Or two.)

(See - not your average garden center!! It's gorgeous! #backyardgoals)

This place is like wandering around a really pretty backyard on a garden tour. 
Except it's big and fabulous.
It is housed in an old coal and ice warehouse and railroad yard 
right along the railroad tracks.

 I could just move in.

(original, real deal sliding doors!)

It's good from the old rusty truck out front that announces they are open 

(don't you want to find an old, rusty truck now?)

all the way through to their social media presence
They post a plant of the day every day on IG with an informative blurb.  

Gardening eye candy and you learn something too.

They are so nice.(Ask for Ashby - he's awesome!!)
 And obviously talented so be sure to go.
I tried to convince them to serve refreshments to me in the garden.

I wanted all.the.plants.
I did buy a plant even though I was traveling.
The displays are irresistible!!
