butterflyAbout the Gardener's Cottage:

Located in the charming old Chaparral building on historic Old Town Front Street, surrounded by beautiful wine country, the Gardener's Cottage has found a welcoming new home amongst many local friends and visitors from all over the US and the world. 
 
Although, as the name indicates, the focus of the store would be gardening-related items (and there is plenty of that), The Gardener's Cottage is truly a full-function gift boutique, with a wonderful array of greeting cards, candles, lotions, jewelry, scarves and purses, baby gifts and an enormous selection of humerous and inspirational signs and books. 
 
The store never lacks for a wealth of fairies, frogs, mermaids, rabbits, gnomes and dragonflies, but seasonally the transformation to halloween, fall harvest then Christmas is nothing short of magical. 
 

Old Town Temecula is over 150 years old, with that nostalgic "Norman Rockwell" feeling -- and is easily a full days-worth of charming little shops, gourmet restaurants, wine-tasting rooms, taverns and antique stores.   There is a bevy of gorgeous romantic inns just a few miles away in wine country--

truly a vacationers paradise.
