How does your garden grow?

While many are bemoaning the loss of Small World Cafe at Danforth and Woodmount, there is still reason to dawdle on said block, if only to check out Country In The City - the new gardening and outdoor store that opened last week at 1769 Danforth Ave.

The balmy weather has me planning a front yard facelift, so I stopped by to check it out on Monday.

While I wasn't totally partial to the wood carvings, or the bohemouth lawn furnishings straight from Lord of the Rings, I was happy to see a great selection of seeds for both flowers and veggies. Had I ever wanted to start a garden (ha! I couldn't even keep bamboo alive!), the store stocks everything I might need to be a healthy horticulturalist.

What did catch my eye was the cutest, on trend, wire mesh animal sculptures that are definitely meant for indoors, not out. At 19.99, a great find for a bookshelf or mantle!

Speaking of great bargains: don't forget Earl Beatty's Bargain Basement Sale coming up on April 17th from 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. Check it out here: http://earlbeatty.blogspot.com/
