REDBUD CREEK FARM GARDEN CENTER

I’ve been working like a bee of late, + while I really love it/mean it . . .

. . . I feared that life might just be passing me by!

Time for an outing.  To here:

I’ve heard good buzz about this place, + it did NOT disappoint..

All this awesomeness is out in the middle of nowhere (J/K, kind of!) . . .

. . . SW of Chicago, somewhere close to Yorkville.

It’s definitely worth the trek,

but you’ll need to use your GPS or MapQuest to get there.

Trust me.

 Sadly, I’m not yet in the market to buy plants,

as our Dutch colonial landscaping is on the way-back,

ohpleasedon’tmakemewaituntilnextspring burner.

Yes, this could have been a major buzz kill, but it wasn’t.

Here’s why:

IMG_4782(1)Lots of eye candy, of the garden center persuasion!

IMG_4752(1)All that red siding with pretty green trim!

 I felt a pang of siding remorse,

because I’d briefly considered said-same for our Dutch colonial!

 Look at those sweet rafter tails!

Look at the garage door, the lightning rod + the cool barn light!

G.O. pointed out that light fixture, which had me mentally high-fiving myself.

It’s good when he digs the same things that I do!

Look closely at what’s on the left side of the potting shed’s door:

OMiGosh, it’s an old kitchen sink, which I totally love

+ which we totally have, languishing downstairs in our basement!!!

Gas up the truck, because it’s headed to its new home,

beside our blue garden shed

(a glimpse of which you can see here, to the right, behind our house!)

But wait!  There’s more!

Yes, that’s another vintage sink, + yes, we have one of those, too!

WOW, my head’s spinning with inspiration!

Speaking of which, this place was packed with repurposed vintage stuff!
