Is this not the most charming potting shed you have ever seen? I thought that until I went on the garden tour on Sunday – which may have to be included in an ‘Inspiration is Everywhere, part 3’ post – my goodness what effort everyone on the tour has put into their gardens! It was truly a sight to be seen. But first…the plant and garden antiques sale!As luck would have it, Saturday and Sunday proved to deliver the most beautiful weather Northwest Connecticut that anyone could have asked for. On Saturday vendors were on display under tents in the yard of the Lion Rock Farm for the Trade Secrets event. There were rare plants, antique garden furniture, and hats…lot’s of shoppers in hats!While they are all wonderful, I’d have to say my favorite two vendors were Hoffman Woodward (in my dreams I will have a flower cutting shed outfitted with a copper clad potting sink) and Marston House who not only carries an incredible line of French antiques but who also over dyes antique linen peasant smocks in bright bold beautiful colors. I purchased one in a vibrant violet color and wore it to the ICFF yesterday!
