Celebrate spring by stopping by the Antique Gardener on Sutter Creek’s pretty Main Street. Here, Aimee Peterson has filled a rambling old house with garden tools, pottery, and her specialty, miniature gardens—charming, small-scale vignettes planted in wooden boxes or galvanized buckets. “I had dollhouses when I was a girl,” Peterson says. “I like little things.” 80 Main St., Sutter Creek; 209/267-5551.
