This weekend was all about gardening and that’s the best kind of weekend. My friend Doreen came up from the Cape for our annual plant shopping trip.
We hit two nurseries on Friday, with a terrific lunch in between. And here’s our haul from that day:
We hit two different nurseries on Saturday, after a delicious breakfast at home. And here’s our haul from that day:
In both photos above Doreen’s plants are on the left and mine are on the right. I got several varieties of coleus, a few perennials (coreopsis, a hellebore, and a gaura) plus petunias and geraniums for my window boxes, lavendar and stock and sweet potato vine and other things that looked beautiful or interesting.
It was super hot here on Sunday so the only planting I did was to get the window boxes done. I’ll share a better photo of those in a future post but for today I thought you’d get a kick out of my Project Supervisors. They were quite interested in the process but, without opposable thumbs, they weren’t much help.
That’s my gardening update for late May. And now I’m off to a two day conference of the Massachusetts Library Association, the first one in 3 years. I’m ready to gather with my colleagues and talk libraries and books!
I’ll catch up with you here later this week.
