Up on the Rooftop--Green, Green, Green


The rooftop of one of the out-buildings at Vinland Valley Nursery, south of Lawrence, Kansas, always dons an array of plants.

My daughter, who lives in Lawrence, introduced me to this charming and delightful organic nursery. For the past few years, I have driven down to Vinland to buy my vegetable and herb plants. I found the best tomatoes ever there:  Alaskan Fancy. But, I digress . . .

Other photos in my National Photo Month collection that were taken at Vinland Valley Nursery are the quaint shed with its picnic table and the rusty but stalwart silo. This rooftop photo is appropriately textured with an overlay called "Organic" from Kim Klassen.

Each year, I stop to admire and snap a photo or two of the rooftop garden. Are all those little plants deliberate or volunteer? I've always wondered.

Make it a great day!

  1. I was wondering the same thing! I love walking through garden shops!

  2. The roof of the gazebo and that of the driveshed here at Pondside are green, green green - thick with the moss that grows year-round here in the Pacific North West. I know I should do something about it, but the truth is that I love it.
