One of my favorite movies as a child was the secret garden, a place of imagination and escape. I love to escape whether that be in nature or in a new area. Lately, I have been escaping a lot since I am new to Las Cruces, NM. I have been exploring with my camera and have come across some amazingly beautiful places and businesses.
Why the secret garden title you ask, well I will tell you, right down the street from my studio there is a secret garden for grown up. It’s called Guzman Greenhouse located on Avenida de Mesilla, it’s a secret garden that is very special and quaint. I got lost looking around yesterday and imagined my backyard full of new projects.
Christmas time is in full swing at Guzman’s Greenhouse. They sell Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettia. The smell of pine is my favorite scent of the season and at Guzman’s it permeates the air. The texture of the trees and the different sized trees made me feel like I was in a little Christmas Forrest in Las Cruces.
This is not your typical Nursery the guys at Guzman’s Greenhouse know everything there is to know about horticulture. They take amazing care of all there green products from fruit trees, winter root vegetables they all receive the proper attention. The love for nature and life is evident when meeting the guys at Guzman’s Greenhouse.
There a ton of plants to choose from, the winter root vegetables really caught my eye. I had no idea that Brussel sprouts where so beautiful the purples and greens where amazing to look at their delicate peddles, absolutely stunning.
They carry all different styles of pots, Paul was telling me that its good to pot some of your plants due to the freezes this time of year. As a photographer I am enamored by plants and everything that is associated with them. Thats why I consider Guzman’s Greenhouse my secret garden.
Check Guzman’s Greenhouse they have a blog all about questions that we have about plants, when to plant, what plants do well in our climate, etc.
Thanks for being apart of my secret garden adventure everyone.
