Everything for your garden — except the plants — can be found at Sundance By Design.
If you’re looking for fountains, sundials, decorative garden art or birdhouses, or if you need a book to learn more about the vegetables in your garden, pottery, gloves or garden tools, this is the place for you. There are also nifty gift ideas for the gardener in your family. It’s a great place to browse.
Sundance By Design, an offshoot of Sundance Gardens and Landscaping, has been open more than a year in the Evergreen Design Center on Meadow Drive. Sundance Gardens has been in Evergreen for decades.
Probably the most unusual item in the store is the collection of dung bunnies — animals made out of animal manure. You place them in your garden, and as it rains, the animals decompose and fertilize the garden.
Kathryn Boylston and Joan Hill work in the shop, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Call the shop at 303-670-8211.
Kitchen at the Creek opens patio
Kitchen at the Creek, a popular restaurant on the east end of downtown Evergreen, has expanded for a second time since opening its doors 13 months ago.
The restaurant, which offers American cuisine with a French influence, has opened the patio on the west side of the building to take advantage of the early-summer-like weather. In December, it had expanded into a second room.
Plus, the restaurant will open for lunch sometime this month.
“We’ve been able to expand largely due to the support of the community,” said restaurant co-owner Ron Mulso. “We have a lot of regular customers that we see two to three times a week. We’ve cultivated a nice following. They appreciate what we’re doing.”
Co-owner and chef John Terczak has spent his life in the kitchen and cooks the seafood, pizza, pasta, steak and chicken dishes daily.
Mulso said their strategy is to move forward in small steps to make sure they get everything right.
The patio, which will have a water feature to add to the ambience, is kid- and family-friendly, Mulso said.
