Today is Shout Out Saturday, right here at Altered Glass, and I would like to feature Hilltop Greenhouse, Illinois City, IL. The setting: in the country, easy to get to, quiet, with beautiful flowers. The people: fun, knowledgeable, able to help you pick what would work in your yard. The time: It's MUM TIME!

Remember this shot from the Garden Walk.........

Look at these now! Wow!! The colors are so exciting!!!

The barn and buildings are so unique and original to the farm. The owners love to tell the story of how they came to love this place. This bit of heaven is truly a work of love and dedication.

AND a Pumpkin Fest at the end of the month!!!! Lots of fun for kids and adults. What a wonderful way to enjoy some family time on the weekend. So get away for a bit and come to the Hilltop Greenhouse, Illinois City, IL for a little day trip, some pumpkins and a taste of fall in the country!
