At the garden centre with Our Little Munchkin

It was bitter cold outside but inside it was nice and warm.

Same photo as above but the colour version.  She loves her wellies.
She enjoyed looking at the turtles.
Here are the turtles a bit closer.
They had big tanks of Koi Fish.  These ones were the owners own ones, brought in for the winter, as they have had a problem with mink in the past eating them.  They will over Winter in a deep pond no problem.  These fish were worth up to $1,000 each, depending on the markings on them.

In the garden centre itself, there were some colourful displays of early Spring flowers and house plants.

That moss feature below, reminds me of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, what do you think? 
 Thought these pots were different and colourful

Our Little Munchkin was a joy to be with and as good as gold.  Saturday was her last day of antibiotics AGAIN.  She has had another chest issue, so has been on antibiotics every month so far this year.

Poor wee munchkin! The only thing worse than being sick, is being sick repeatedly... hope she's over it for good.

I hope lil Munchkin doesn't get immune to all the antibiotics! How awful for her to have to those issues. I think that looks like a wonderful "Spring" escape!

She is adorable. And I hope she doesn't have any more colds. Poor thing. How nice to see all the colourful flowers.

Horrid those continuing infections. I hope she shrugs them off soon. Isn't she sweet! The garden centre is lovely. I just love visiting those places and go whenever I can!

What a cutie pie! Is it even warm enough in your area to actually plant those flowers yet?

What a little cutie! Love the wellies. We used to have Koi Carp but then had to leave them when we moved. Little did I know just how much they were worth! Take care x

She is adorable! I wonder what she thinks of the turtles.

I cannot imagine owning a koi worth $1000! Definitely wouldn't want a mink to eat it!

My goodness, those Koi Carp are amazing fish aren't they? thanks for the trip around, sure beats the weather!

Those pots are gorgeous. I wonder if they'll withstand winter frost. I can spend a fortune in a garden centre. I'm glad Munchkin is on the mend. Its so easy to get chest infections at that age.

Thanks for the visit, Gill.

Loved seeing all the colourful flowers (especially the purple ones!) at the garden centre. I also think that the moss thingy looks like a TMNT. Cowabunga!

Love the potted plants, that pic do resemble a Ninja turtle.

Although I have a bit of fear with Koi fishes, we see plenty of them at times and I'm just terrified of their gaping mouths on the surface of the water whenever someone feeds them (they know! hence the opening of their mouths well before they actually throw anything into the pond!).

sweet munchkin :) Love the Garden centre and all its beautiful flowers.

I hope your Munchkin can get over her colds, etc. She sure is a doll.

I am almost afraid to say this, but I think Lorelei has been well for at least two weeks, now, maybe three. It has been ages since she has been well this long.
