Petaluma's Garden Valley Nursery provides an eye feast of blooms of every color, and it is only 30 minutes from my house. I am amazed that this is my first visit to this delightful 5 acre plant potpourri.
Since I have grown up in this area, I am always amazed when I find a gorgeous spot or fantastic restaurant that has been around for years. Such is the case with this charming nursery, the scene over the years of many a wedding.
We prowled the grounds enjoying the many plant varieties and ended our visit with the attractive gift shop where, I am happy to say, my wallet stayed in my purse.
I'm adding this one to my list of Sonoma County treasures.
