For two hours, I was in horticultural heaven, wandering among batches of beautifully tended plants with not a weed in sight. There were inevitably cacti and succulents, but also shrubby plants, perennials, roses and a whole lot more!
The huge and diverse range of plants suggested that the owner was a real plantsman rather than just a wholesale grower. What's more the staff were friendly and chatty. Jim and I bought a few plants, including a small tree for Jim's garden. Whilst we debated whether we could get it in his car, the owner announced that he was in Palm Springs the next day so would personally deliver. You can't get better service than that!
Finally we asked for a recommendation for lunch and were directed to Nessy Burgers about two miles down the road. Now whilst I am not normally a fan of little roadside food wagons, the lines waiting to order and the crowded picnic tables suggested that this might be OK. It was more than OK - the best burger and fries I've eaten in a long time! A great end to a lovely morning!
