Heavenly Vintage Nursery

The Get-Along has visited this garden location for
many many years.  The location was once the
site of Heard's Gardens and the famed lovely late
Mary Lou Heard

Mr. Lee and I attended the last sale with Mary Lou
in attendance.  She handed me, Gertrude, a beautiful
hydrangea or hortensia as my mother would call her.
Gertrude gives me great pleasure and still sits on our front porch.

Gardens grow with our memories.  My mother lovingly
worked the soil of Pumpkin Cottage and her legacy
lives on in my memories and in our garden.

A magical spot in the middle of urban Westminster.

Don't wait,  the property is up for sale and like so many other
treasures in Southern California it will probably
be developed into something with no charm.


  1. Is that the old Heards Nursery? I use to love that place. And then one of the girls from Cottage Gardens or whatever it was called after Mary Lou passed, has been in my store for awhile. Love your posts!

    Take care,

    1. Yes, Sue, that is Mary Lou's Heard's Nursery site. Next door used to be The Vintage Rose, Cathy Jarrell's store before the Vintage Lady. I am so glad she found a home at Country Roads. Thank you for stopping by, friend.
