Business Scene for the week of 5/15/19

In downtown Taylorsville
Jennifer Ayres has opened Mountain Ayres Garden on Nelson Street in Taylorsville. After retiring from Plumas Unified School District last year, Jennifer decided to pursue her love of gardening by opening a business where she sells hanging and container plants and flowers — petunias a specialty — along with veggie plants and some perennials. Her husband Mark works in the technology department for PUSD. Jennifer will be having a grand opening on Saturday, May 18, the same day as the popular Indian Valley area-wide yard sales.
