Wishing for Spring, Gazebos and the Coast!

Originally posted last year  on 1/11/10..I was wishing for spring then too!  I'm linking with Chari's Sunday Favorites..go by and visit everyone's favs!

I know it is only mid - January but I am yearning for spring garden days.  I was browsing through my pictures and found this lovely garden shoppe I visited last year in Pacific Grove.  Hope you enjoy walking through this garden as much as I did.   

Trellis is a lovely garden shoppe  I fell in love with in Pacific Grove, California.  The owner was so gracious and allowed me to photograph her adorable shop that she designed herself .  
She designed a gazebo building and greenhouse to display her beautiful garden themed items.   She even showed me her drawings!   She has exquisite taste, just look at the crystal chandlier  that hangs  in the center of the shoppe.   

Pretty garden and home decor abounds with a mix of elegance and rustic combined.  I love this style and spent hours just combing the place  and purchased  the cutest butterfly napkin rings and garden watering cans.  This watering can fountain was a favorite.  

You are greeted by a happy red variegated geranium in a french wire basket on the open french door.  

Fragrant petunias on a gate gate. 

Outside in the courtyard area are fun garden items and beautiful plants and flowers for sale.  

I love the blue potting bench with herbs and lavender on the shelf.

The greenhouse was a design of a shed that she had the builder add  larger windows and a polycarbonate roof to bring in more light.

More views

I love this window treatment in the shoppe.

I hope you enjoyed this little garden shoppe tour  as much as I am wishing for spring days! 

If you ever visit the area, stop in for a visit at Trellis.  


  1. Sonia,

    We all are, but most of us have a long time to go!


  2. Oh my gosh you have to stop teasing us with pictures of those beautiful places. Wouldn't it be just dreamy to own a place like Trellis? I think I could totally do that. Don't you think Edmond needs it? Oh yes!

  3. Thanks for the tour! I am looking forward to Spring! Still a way to go!

  4. Oh this really is a lovely shop! If I'm ever in Pacific Grove I'll have to check it out!!

  5. I will put this store on my list when I head south instead of north! Thanks for sharing. - Delores

  10. Wow, that shop is great. I'm a bit of a gazebos fan myself.

  14. Oh Sonia how beautiful! I'm ready for spring.

    Have a blssed weekend.

  15. One of the things that I've always loved about our little spot in the world is that in the middle of winter, our mighty God often blesses us with a spring day or week. I fully expect another snowstorm between now and April, but because of days like today, I'm ready for it! The flower shop is so special...just like most of Pacific Grove. I have a friend who lives there. Thanks for sharing this treasured adventure and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

  17. What a lovely spot to visit. We are having some bad weather today, so it is especially nice to see something that speaks of spring and summer. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  18. Sonia, I too could spend hours in this shop. I'd love to have a room on my house just like this one. Love all the glass! Thanks for sharing this one. I'm adding it to my CA file. ;-)
