Johnnye Merle Gardens & Nursery

 Yesterday I had some time to really wander around and spend some time in Johnnye Merle Gardens & Nursery. It is outside the back door of Country Roads and is one of my favorite places at Country Roads!  My oldest daughter, Brande, named the nursery after her Grandma, (my Mom) Johnnye, who is pictured below.  Even as my Mom got much older and could no longer garden in her flower beds, my Dad put in a greenhouse window in their home so she still could do a bit of gardening.  There are certain times that I will wander around out in JM Gardens. I find peace there and enjoy being surrounded be all of the plants and knowing my Mom would love to be there with me.  My Mom loved cats. She always had cats her entire life.  And what is ironic and kind of spooky at times is that our JM Gardens is always filled with cats from the surrounding neighborhood. I know that would make her happy!!  Here a few of my favorite things out in Johnney Merle's Garden and Nursery. . .

This is such a small collection of what we have out back in the nursery.  I am a bit prejudiced, but I really love it out there!  I hope you all have time to come visit us soon. The gardens are filled with everything you need for your own Spring gardens. And we do carry Annie's Annuals along with Native Sons and a variety of other plants.  Are looking for succulents?  We have a huge selection! I'm just saying.  Take care!!


Happy Sunday!

 It is an absolutely beautiful Sunday morning here in sunny SoCal!  I just wanted to share a few pictures from my favorite store, Country Roads Antiques and Gardens.  Today is the second day of our three day big President's Day week-end sale. There is some amazing discounts on great stuff! 

All of us here at Country Roads hope you stop by and enjoy shopping with a store full of great stuff and most of it at discounted prices!!  Happy Sunday. . .


February at Country Roads

There are always so many things at Country Roads to choose from when it comes to taking pictures. I'm usually in a hurry when I take the pictures and always hope for the best.  Here are a few of the things that caught my eye yesterday!

As I always say, "the store" which is our name for Country Roads is looking really good right now. I sure hope you have a chance to stop buy and visit.  And please don't forget, we are going to have a REALLY big Presidents Day sale! It will begin on Saturday the 14th, and end on Monday the 16th. I promise that there is great stuff with great percentages off!  Take care. . .  Sue


My Love Affair!

 Here we are in February as January seemed to disappear in a blink of an eye.  As you might already have guessed,  I am just SO in love with Country Roads!! It's been a 23 year love affair and I never have felt anything but love for this place I call my second home! Actually, my love affair with Country Roads has lasted longer than my marriage did, LOL!  With all that said, I don't want to bore you with my ramblings so I will let you enjoy some of our latest eye candy!

What is always amazing to me is not only how much stuff that is available here at Country Roads, but that my CR family is so, so talented in a way that is never disappointing.  I truly have been blessed over all these years to be surrounded by such a great group of people. My hopes are, as always, that you will stop in to see us.  Things change daily around this place I call home!  And if you are interested in seeing more pictures of CR, there is always a daily photo on our Facebook page which is Country Roads Antiques & Gardens.  I hope to see you soon, and have a wonderful week!

Take care. . .   Sue
