This weekend we came to Idyllwild, ate a picnic lunch under the towering pines, then wandered down the main street. We found a nursery I hadn’t noticed before because my attention was caught by these baby pines.
The tiny trees are such a contrast to the lofty pines all around this town. Attracted by these fledglings, we entered the Lily Rock Native Gardens and looked around. I love the different kinds of pines, with their varied lengths and styles of needles.
You can buy seeds to start your own garden. You can find a birdhouse to hang in your yard. You can’t say this nursery has everything but the kitchen sink because it does actually have an antique kitchen sink.
The tiny pines drew me into this delightful garden. They may seem insignificant next to the giants that tower over the town. But they attracted me and led to a fun discovery. We may think we’re too small to make much of a difference, but it may be just that quality that attracts others who can relate to us.
How about you? Have you discovered an inviting new place to explore?
