After a short time shopping and picking out several items, Barb announced, "I've gotta get out of here!", which made me chuckle.
I'm now wondering if my "ohmyword, come look at THIS" or "wowww, this is unique" finally got to her. It's dangerous to your pocketbook to flower shop with moi. I just love everything. I should be more quiet on these trips. HA.
Above you see the loot I acquired today.
Three coleus plants. This is new territory, I never buy coleus.
Herbs: lemon thyme, rosemary, & basil. Must haves.
An old fashioned favorite: vintage antique mix miniature Stock. Very fragrant flowers... a unique spicy scent. This gem was purchased at Ace on the Lake greenhouse.
Flowering Maple. I love the big fat buds. Is it trying to take a bite out of it's sibling? I hope not.
"Hip hop" Euphorbia plant makes a nice wispy filler in a large pot of flowers.
"Sunset Shades" tuberous begonia next to "Snowland" Chrysanthemum.
Flowering maple in creamy yellow. I'm in a flowering maple craze. Just ignore me. It's in your best judgement.
Teeny tiny baby's breath called "Gypsy Deep Rose" (Gypsophila). A very dainty, wispy filler plant that requires full sun.
"Apple blossom" non-stop begonias are what drew me to Deer Haven in the first place as they are the only greenhouse in town that carries that color.
I just finished schlepping this nice mix into my front porch to be safe & sound for the night.
It was so fun to visit the first greenhouse of the season!
