No more Smith & Hawken

This is kind of a bummer. Smith & Hawken is closing down. I always loved getting the company's catalog because it was full of beautiful things for the garden. A tad expensive, but sometimes you could get a good deal on a sale. There used to be a store on Grand Avenue in St. Paul -- I remember visiting it when shopping with friends in The Cities and seeing the most beautiful amaryllis display -- but the store locator only lists one in Edina.

Here's more interesting stuff about the store, via, where guest ranter Maureen Decombe has a well-done essay.
