They serve delicious food...pizza, salads, sweets and fabulous coffee and tea. You can pop in for a quart of milk, a loaf of bread, stock up on some deli items or buy imported foods and condiments...and if that is not enough there is a gardener's dream just outside where one can peruse the plants from a bench or a table as one sips a coffee.
The plants are displayed with an artistic eye...mixing textures and colours to show off their beauty.
I rarely leave empty handed!
So come along with me as I snapped some pictures this week and see if you agree...
the pot is made by a local craftsman
I love the effect of the ribbing and the colour together with these plants
wall plantings are popping up all over town and I love how these add interest
siiting here in the sunshine is so relaxing
I enjoyed a cup of tea and a spinach salad with beets and orange segments
I chatted with a woman who related the story of how her friend had planted one in the garden that took two seasons before it came into flower
only one bloom
and she gave it to this woman who was her friend and had recently lost her husband
I felt an immediate kinship with this gardener
who BTW bought this plant for her own garden.
my love of limelight hydrangeas never wanes
lovely colours and textures in this pot!
looking north at all the plants as we weave our way to the back of the nursery
they carry a stock of unusual specimens
I covet this concrete pot
frilly and frothy
Demitasse offers a huge collection of great plants to tempt the gardener
the thing is that I could use a little help with restraint!
again that great appealing combination of white and green
be still my beating heart!
who doesn't love a topiary?
I hope my Flax grows this tall
Hmm I do like this...
I bought a spikey grass that has mauve flowers
which is currently on the front porch
as I have yet to find a place in The Humble Bungalow Garden
to plant it!
Please go and visit Demitasse if you find yourself in Oak Bay
