This past weekend, Rob, Em, Ro and I took a trip to one such nursery that had been recommended by friends for good plants and good advice. While Rob talked plants with an employee, the boys and I went back and forth looking at baby fruit trees, admiring backyard chicken coops that butted up against the nursery, found treasures, followed butterflies, and got dusty.
Bees were lazily flittering about between lavender bushes and, nearby, a baby goat laid in the shade near its' momma trying to beat the heat.
To beat the heat ourselves, we followed the section specified for shaded plants for a bit. The collection of pallets that made up the floor were sun bleached but strong.
Rob called me over to confer about plants... we bought a few varieties of lavender, more bushes, a fast growing vine for a sun wall and headed home. Soon I'll have progress pics.
Incidentally, I have not forgotten about my promise of a meal done entirely on the BBQ... we had a few last-minute dinner dates with family. So, watch for the BBQ post this week.
Happy Monday Everyone! -Hettie
