Mr. Johnson's


Whenever I meet a new gardener and I hear them say they want to buy statuary or benches the first thing that comes to mind is I need to take them to Mr. Johnson’s. I’ve met a new friend that is busy creating a garden and I took him to Mr. Johnson’s to find the things he needed. While we were there I snapped a few pictures for you guys to see. His prices cannot be beat. He has three tiered fountains that you would pay 800 to a 1000 dollars retail sale available for purchase for 175 dollars. You would still have to buy the pump, but that’s minimal expense. He has everything, huge stepping stones for 3 to 5 dollars, birdbaths for 15, all sorts of planters; the list just goes on and on. So if you are in the market it would be a great day trip for you if you live in Alabama. I have no affiliation with Mr. Johnson; I just wanted to share his business with you because I can guarantee you cannot come close to finding these items retail for the price you can buy them from him. Here are just a sample of items and prices.



Concrete benches with legs - $50.00


Four foot concrete benches with marble and legs-$ 60.00


Very large urns and bases- $40.00 each. I’ve seen these same urns and bases sold as a pair for hundreds of dollars.




When I asked Mr. Johnson why his prices were so low he just had a puzzled look on his face and said, “Well, it’s just concrete…” His business is located 6 miles north of Clanton, on Alabama Highway 31. Below you will see a sign with phone numbers, if you are driving from a long distance you may want to call first to see if he has what you are looking for in stock.


In other news, I went to see the surgeon Wednesday and he said my new injury will heal just fine and will go away very soon. He insists that walking is the best way to strengthen my back so I continue to do as he says so I’m still walking a mile in the morning and one in the evening. I’m happy to report that I have now lost 20 pounds and I am tickled to death about it! I also got my car out of the shop yesterday and it looks fantastic too, so everything is falling back into place again. As for Digital Impressions I am still working on the blog and I haven’t posted anything yet. In the meanwhile, I’m learning to use Manual focus on my cameras rather than the auto shot, so I am curious to see how my photos will look when I start to post them. I’ll do some with manual and some with auto to see how bad the difference will be. ROTFL. Okay, I’m off to do my mile then I have yard chores to do. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there. God bless~ Randy

Even with the price of gas, it might still be worth a trip to Alabama from Indiana! Those prices ARE amazing. I'd love to own that bench with marble embedded in it!

It's good to hear the benefits you are enjoying due to your walking routine. Keep it up!
