Grasshopper Mexican Market

woodyoak zone 5 Canada(5b)August 26, 2010

gb - have you ever stopped at Grasshopper on HWY 6 near Concession 7? The Mexican market is fun - we stopped on our way to St. Jacob this afternoon. I can't remember if I've posted pictures of it before. I think it's a place with lots of idyll appeal :-)

There are LOTS of big pots!

and other stuff.

I think it used to be called Casa del Sol or something like that at one time. There are quite a few sun wallhangings.


And statue sort of things

And just plain bizarre stuff too

It's where we got the big frog that guards the wet corner bed. Today we picked up a turtle for the garden:

Misty was a bit dubious about the new resident:

At the moment it is hiding under some Solomon's Seal under the oak tree - I'm not sure if that is where it will stay or not...

Here is a link that might be useful: Grasshopper

Never been there!

We have a turtle that moves about. We take turns relocating it!

I really love what I think are partridges :) Those big urns are cool, too.

What a great place, Woody!

Wow Woody! what a wonderful place.... good thing I'm not any closer to it or I'd be dropping bundles of moola there.

Love the new turtle!

That's a lot of pots! Even Deanne couldn't fill them all. I like your placement of the new turtle. I like things peeking through the foliage.
