Grumbles (I)






Grumbles House is an institution in the small town of Dunnellon which is located a few miles southwest of Ocala.  

It combines antiques and plants and a variety of assorted goodies with something for almost everyone.

The 2nd shot above gives you an idea of their outdoor garden.  The third shot is of a small shed on the back of the property, and the fourth shot is of a "new" addition to the Grumbles company - a building which sells "boutique" items, including some clothing.

I shall post some photos of the interior of the main house tomorrow.  Meanwhile you can learn all you need to know about Grumbles on their website HERE.

I like the house in the last photo. Neat little porch would be nice place to sit and watch the people come and go. The shack is pretty cool too.

That is a great looking house, and some one loves plants. It must be a fun place to visit.
Thank you for your comment on my post today. I drove past that mural, and had to stop to photograph it. The light was not very good, but I liked the shots anyway.

It made me think of Key West though I've never been there.

What a great place to visit. My mind boggles at the amount of work involved to keep it operating!

I can tell from your photos that I would absolutely love this place! I thought of you when I was passing through Ocala both times on my way to and from Orlando this past weekend. One of these days we will have to meet up!

That is quite a colorful place. the garden area is gorgeous. It's overflowing with blooms.
I always thought grumbles was something dad would do when he wasn't very pleased with something we kids did.

I do like the house or maybe just the white picket fence---sans christmas lights of course. haha

Oh my gosh that's unique and colorful. I'm not much of a shopper, but I'd love this place (they'd probably want to charge me for taking pictures).
