Crystal Gardens – ahhhhhh

Yesterday I stopped in at Crystal Gardens.  Being there is always so wonderful.  Everything is manicured, the green houses are stuffed with beautiful plants.  Butterflies are dancing around one’s head, the smells are so sweet – I love being there.

When I got out of the car, I could hear the peacocks and peahens screaming but I didn’t see them.  I slunk past the “Barn Swallow”  and went in search of little things for my flower boxes. Of course I found them and so much more.
Ochhhhh, to hold on to your wallet at any nursery is tough but here, it’s near impossible.

It had started to rain and yours truly was not prepared. I got wet. This lady was prepared.

Could you resist buying something here?

The Beach this Morning

It is so dry and hot this summer, my flower boxes, even with the help of twice daily watering, are having a tough time making me happy.  So today, for the first time this season,  I bought Miracle Grow 😯

My plan was to keep my flowers fed with the help of a daily dose of coffee grounds. That actually works very well but now my flowers are pooped.

Long story short, I went into Frankfort to the Hardware store on Main Street and got the stuff.  One never goes into Frankfort without making the loop at the end of Main Street.

The beach was deserted this morning at 9:30.  Some birds were at the water’s edge and there were 2 guys playing with their paddle boards

 

Grey vs. green and shady

The beach is only about 600 yards away and the stairs are really almost done. Yay

Dang-it!

I am sure can understand that I was shocked to see this morning that one of my newly planted flower boxes had fallen down on the job.

I couldn’t believe it and neither could the little Pekin Duck.
