In Orange Garden Center's expansive nursery and store, cherry-bomb barberries and japanese maple trees keep watch over purple, yellow, and red flowers, all clad in leafy outfits. More than 800 varieties of perennials lend years of color to lawns, and friendly staffers assist more modest makeovers with stone accents, topsoil, and mulches in hardwood or cedar. After running curious palms over Orange Garden Center's stock of ornamental grasses, patrons can retreat inside to peruse gardening tools and specialty items, such as deer repellent and books on tape, to keep plants entertained while their owners are at work. Orange Garden Center also offers a selection of pottery and window boxes, and customers who purchase pottery can take advantage of the custom flower potting area, where staff is available to plant new purchases at no extra cost.

Cheery chatter wafts across Reeves-Reed Arboretum as visitors ogle more than 13 acres of professionally cultivated lawns, gardens, and woodland, which were established in the late 1800s as a private-estate garden. Unpaved trails weave meandering flora fanatics through blossoming leafage including 5.5 acres of formal gardens, various wetlands, and a rose garden showcasing 150 varieties and designs from the 1900s. A wildlife habitat brims with critters and gives Russian honeybees a venue for daily re-enactments of Dr. Zhivago. Members receive discounts on programs and workshops, admission to members-only exhibition previews, access to the Arboretum library, and a 10 percent discount at participating nurseries or other shops owned by trees.
Just Shades clothes bashful light bulbs in ready-to-wear or custom lampshade garments. Hard-back shades come with fabric or paper exteriors that are laminated or tacked onto a card backing and that can fit in with the sleek, modern décor of a prefab home or a space station built by dolphins. Choose from a smorgasbord of hard-back options, including square shades with eggshell-colored crystal-pleat frocks that accent their curvaceous silhouettes (3.5'x5'x5', $36), and cowhide empire shades (4'x8'x6.5', $34). Or opt for a traditional soft-sided shade, such as a silk-string empire shade with a burgundy hue to match the wine served at monthly Fisher-Price Fan Club meetings (3'x6'x5', $36).
