Isobelle Golightly's Lady and I went shopping yesterday. She had been telling me about the wonders of the Amish greenhouses in her area for weeks, and I really wanted to see them. After all, I had just about everything planted for the year, so I wouldn't be tempted to buy much. Riiiiiiiight!
I got so enthralled with the greenhouses that I forgot all about taking pictures of them. The plants are beautiful, and the prices are quite inexpensive. I ended up buying a lot of stuff that I just couldn't resist. Here's pictures from when I got home with everything.
I can't remember the names of everything that I bought, but the two big plants are a false sprirea and a honeysuckle (which I had wanted before we left). There are two of the most gorgeous orangey, yellowy begonias tucked away in there, along with a couple of geraniums, and just tons of other stuff.
Now the big problem becomes "Where the heck do I plant all of these things?"
After we finished shopping, we drove to a place that the Lady knew of to have lunch. On the way there, we saw a herd of Highland Cattle. Of course, I had to stop and take pictures. They are the most delightful, hairy beasties.
As always when I do something with Isobelle's Lady, I had a wonderful time. But, next time, we're going someplace where I have no excuse to spend money.
