High-Hand

Last weekend we headed up to Rocklin to visit with Grandma and Grandpa Jackson as well as Uncle Scott.  We had a lovely time catching up, admiring their vegetable garden, and eating yummy food.  The highlight of the trip was Saturday morning brunch at High-Hand Conservatory.  It is a lovely restaurant on the grounds of an old fruit packing shed.  Surrounding the restaurant is a gorgeous nursery and art gallery.  The food was superb and the ambiance was sublime.  

After brunch, we walked over to the nursery and found a koi pond.  Noah got to feed his fish fascination
He could have stared at the fish all day if we had let him.
After peeling Bubs away from his precious fish, we continued to walk through the nursery.   He found a fun fountain that just demanded that you stick your hand in it.
There was also a fun, old tractor that Noah enjoyed...until Kc noticed the wasps that were coming out of it.
The nursery had a HUGE area of pots, statues, fountains, and anything else you could possible want/or need in your garden. 
Anyone in need of a large ladybug?
Who is that crazy boy?
Bubs did find some huge, bronze statues that he fell in love with.  The elephant was a particular favorite...couldn't you just see that in our backyard???     
The turtle, however, stole the show. 
It was love at first sight!
