I last wrote a bit about Briggs Nursery in April but things have really blossomed since then.  This garden center located in North Attleboro, MA has some of the nicest displays around.  Check out this annual tree! Dsc_0013 In the background you can see the palm trees which are imported each year for the roadside garden.  They are quite a conversation piece in this zone 5 - 6 area.  As you can see, the front is full of color.  Dsc_0012 I know that yesterday I said I really preferred the 'hot' colors such as the first picture and this displayDsc_0011 but after seeing these containers which are used as edgings and barriers, I might change my mind!

The nursery yard is well stocked and neat as can be.Dsc_0014   There is even a palm tree in the back to pique your interest.Dsc_0015   Briggs also has a lovely shade garden which features

many different varieties of hostaDsc_0018

and other shade loving plants such as this Dsc_0021 variegated pachysandra, the always elegant European ginger,Dsc_0019 and this little Solomon's seal groundcover.Dsc_0022

The shaded walk in this garden invites you right in for a strollDsc_0020 among some very large Dsc_0024 and varied hostas and then the path leads you right back out into the sunshine.Dsc_0023
