I had a good day, yesterday. Good friends, good shopping, good flowers, who could ask for anything more?
I started the day going to the post office. They had a beautiful bush in bloom there, that I haven't the slightest idea what it is.
Their lilacs were in full bloom, also. They smelled wonderful!
From there, it was off to where I used to work, to deliver some excess flowers to a friend. Here's a picture of two of my good work friends, Jaime and Kathy. You know, one of the good things about working for a large company is that you get to meet people of all ages. These two girls are much younger than I am. I probably would have never gotten to be friends with them if I hadn't had the opportunity to work with them, because, at their young age, they tend to do have different interests than I do. I'm very glad I got the opportunity to know them.
The flowers I brought to Kathy are "yellow flowers." I was told by the person that gave them to me that they are Evening Primrose. They're not, but I have yet been able to figure out what they are.
Jaime had some coneflowers for me. I know just where they are going to go.
From there, after a quick detour home to sit out a thunderstorm, it was off to Bauman's Farm Market to buy my annuals. I spent a fun hour or so wandering around their 10 greenhouses. This is what I ended up with. I could have bought twice as much.
I was very thirsty after I did all of that browsing so, before I went home, I stopped at Tim Horton's to get something cold to drink. Tim Horton's is a Canadian outfit that has, in the last few years, started to move into the US. They have doughnuts, and the most wonderful coffee, hot and cold.
I splurged and got a large butter caramel "Iced Capp." Iced Cappacino, mmmmm. OK, OK, so I had half of it drunk before I got it the mile home, so the picture doesn't really do it justice.
Yup, a good day. Hope you had one, too.
