Mine's on Pima Street just west of Craycroft in Tucson. It's called Terra Designs. Chefs come here to buy herbs.
There's something about a plant nursery that attracts optimists. I'm one of those. An optimist.
I don't remember ever meeting anyone in a nursery, browsing among the plants, and thinking to myself "Wow. What a negative person!" Not once in sixty years.
Negativity just can't exist in a place like Terra Designs, where everything around you speaks of new life, color, texture, and possibilities.
The southwest is a place of bright, vibrant colors, and our nurseries reflect that. I can't tell you what these flowers are, but I know I like them!
So why is this little nursery my favorite? There are much larger nurseries in Tucson, with a greater variety of plants to offer, but there's something about the architecture and layout of this little place that draws you in. Have you ever been to a prayer garden in a monastery? The sense of peace that comes over you in such a place exists in this little plot of commercial activity on Pima Street in Tucson, Arizona.
