So picture this: I’m innocently driving down Providence Road on a rather gray fall day when, all of a sudden, I’m just slapped in the face with a burst of color.
This is how I discovered Pete’s Oasis, a greenhouse that’s positively teeming with mums right now.
… have you ever seen…
… just look at them all! They just start out planting them in pots, knowing that, ultimately, everyone is just going to want a big pot of mums once fall hits.
The business is owned by Pete and Deb Boutiette. There isn’t a sign, but there is an “open” flag, so just look for that to see where to turn into the driveway. I had to make a couple passes to spot it.
Right now they’re gearing up for Halloween, so they have tons of pumpkins on hand.
Did I say tons?
It’s really a gorgeous little business. They’re open Memorial Day-Christmas Eve, so if you’re in the market for mums, or plan to go crazy with the wreaths and poinsettias this year, keep them in mind.
