Habersham Gardens is a full service garden center near our place. It's just off Cheshire Bridge Road in Atlanta. If you are in the neighborhood, you'll enjoy a visit. We want to live there.
Why? Well, it's colorful.
It's an architecture and site plan that appeals us. It wasn't originally built as a garden center. It's in a series of single story huts, sheds, porches, and shacks joined by gravel paths and arbors. Here, green meets blue.
Blue and orange.
Mottled red, 2 greens, bright blue door, curvy fence top, stuck-on white finials.
This little building is one a series connected sheds, partly enclosed and part cool hangout. The empty door and window frames look good.
There is an overgrown path. Where does it lead?
To the garden theater, just in case we want to put on a show or a wedding.
We love gravel paths, drives, and yards. You can't tell from the pictures but Habersham's paths are crushed terracotta mixed with deep blue glass pebbles. It's a great effect.
The garden center got us feeling colorful and eclectic. We had to try it ourself. So we bought this inexpensive outdoor rug for our porch. We'll see how that turns out.
We have few more pictures in the slide show, full screen is nice.
As long as you are in the neighborhood, you should visit Flora Dora and Antiques and Beyond.
