Garden Center



This is the time of year when everyone -- in the northern hemisphere at least -- is going to their local garden centers, to buy new plants to replenish their gardens.

Well, don't go here.  It is not a garden center.  The historic district in the town of Wethersfield has wonderfully interesting street signs.  This is the intersection of Garden Street and Center Street.  A different view of the intersection is seen below.

Clever and whimsical; a great combination.

Isn't there a Garden City, Maryland (or maybe New Jersey)?

From the 2nd shot, I'd say the signs are geographically correct - you are looking at the center of a garden!

How neat is that! Garden Centre is on our list of places to visit too here in England. The question is, when? This year, May has been the 7th coldest May since records were kept.
