Good Fences… 4

DSC_1475 - Copy copyTrinklein Brothers Greenhouses

Have no idea why the happy flower faces are behind the fence. Perhaps they were concerned the petunias would escape… from the cold. And snow. We make several trips to Trinklein’s in the Spring. It is a fiesta of color and happy flowers. Trinklein’s is a Spring tradition and the trip always includes lunch out… HAPPY! It is a beautiful drive to get there and a thrill to bring home our flower faces that hopefully will be with us through summer and fall. Fingers always crossed that the deer and squirrels don’t love them as much as we do!

  1. Pretty picture, Pix! Love the splash of color behind the old wagon wheel. Reading that you make several trips there each spring reminded me of our trips to “Anderson’s Greenhouse and Nursery”….that’s my downfall this time of year. Well, it will be, if the weather ever warms up!

  2. So much in this photo to love. Love your thoughts on why the flowers are behind the fence, the wheel and the name of the nursery. I went to google translate curious about the name Trinklein…haha…I’ll let you google it.

  3. maybe they heard about the petunia-thief what goes around? last year someone snitched a lot of flowers in our street, including the windowboxes :o) maybe we sould visit your Greenhouse too, the petunias look much better than our pitiful weed, it’s too cold here too.

    1. The petunia-thief Easy! You crack me up. I am sure that is why they fenced in the petunias, yeah for sure. I’d be not happy if someone stole my flowers, it’s bad enough the deer and squirrels like them for snacks.

  4. We must protect those lovely blossoms, because down here or is it up here, not sure where this is, but Minnesota seems to be too busy blossoming more snowbanks! I want flowers! Alive and living in my gardens!

    1. You can reach them easily coming out of each of the greenhouses! No idea why they did those fences. At first I thought to make something grow up them but that never happened. Now I think it is to keep visitors moving along in formation.. 😀 But the fences don’t keep you from going anywhere on the property. Good Afternoon Isobel! How is the arm?

    1. Good Morning Margaret! Every bloomin’ thing is for sale in and outside the greenhouses and the fence does not keep you from going anywhere. Maybe there is a gate somewhere they lock up at night but I have never noticed it. But I love the fence with the wagon wheel! Thanks for the visit!

  6. You were so close to my house! I love going to Trinkleins. One of my classmates, also names Patti is a
    daughter-in-law there. She works the cash register and so much more. We visit several times a season! Happy planting!

  7. Very cheery fence with the happy flowers behind it. I love going to Flower Nurseries too. Only thing is I tend to spend way to much money when I do. Thankfully deer aren’t a problem here in town.

    1. Good Morning Ida! I hear you on the spending money part. For some reason I don’t mind so much when it is flowers.. 😉 Lucky for you with deer. They eat every little and big thing in sight! Enjoy your Friday. Heading to your blog, I think I see a post from you!

  8. I keep forgetting about Good Fences, it looks like fun! Love old wagon wheel. And I Can’t Wait to plant flowers! I’m just itching to get my hands in the dirt and plant.
    Btw, Pix, I forgot to tell you earlier tonight that the doc says BG might have acid reflux. I’m keeping fingers crossed it’s that!

    1. I am wanting to plant too Cheryl! The picture is from last year. We haven’t bought anything this year except for Kimberly Queen ferns! Happy to hear good news about BG. My cardiologist has had me taking Prilosec since my stent procedure to protect against the acid in my heart meds. I have mixed thoughts about taking the Prilosec. I have never had acid reflux issues. I like the way BG’s Doc handled this possible heart issue.. I am looking for a new cardiologist 😉

  9. This is a pretty picture. Maybe the flowers were creating a stir on the street and got themselves locked up behind bars. Now they press their little faces to the panes, hoping someone will come along and set them free.

  10. Beautiful photo Pix! Oh how I love that first foray to the greenhouses/nurseries in Spring…..have to be careful though with Mother Nature tossing us the occasional freeze and frost as well as a snow sprinkle. But in the next week or two I’ll be heading out to bring home some “pretty floral faces” myself!!!

    Hugs, Pam (and Sam)

  11. Petunias are a favorite flower of mine. I have them every year. When I was a child, they grew in our yard. The color was different, it was a pale lavender. The fragrance was heavenly. Loved the wagon wheel!
