The official proclamation is made from the bedroom ……. and today has been nominated as “Official Hanging Basket Day” and thus it shall be!
The car is made ready and we are off to Denny’s for breakfast before seeing if anything can be rescued from the Walmart mortuary where plants are sent to die.
Some still living half priced items and 8 bags of Miracle Grow soil are duly loaded and we are off to City Market and collect some plants for the back of the raised bed and a nice half priced Hibiscus along with a wind burnt Gardenia. This completes Load 1 so time to go back to the house for unloading before our main purchases at Four Seasons.
First load arrives at Cozy
Vic, the owner, is on hand to give favorite customers the official tour of the greenhouses and one by one the 5 chosen baskets are ferried to the main building to join the 2 selected tomato baskets that will hang from the Maple.
See anything you like?
What about that one?
Home with load 2 and irrigation lines are checked, baskets hung and padlocks secured (its happened before!)
We love the “Painter’s Splatter”
A matching pair of these
By 1300 we are unloaded and everything is finding its place for the summer. Time to see how we are doing in the garden as the plants keep growing both in size and number!
Hibiscus in its new spot
…… another basket
The wheelbarrow looks good
Window box redone
1/2 price Walmart pot with the back row of Figgy things
Haven’t found a spot for this one!
The birds are back
The Shade Garden is nearly fully stocked and replanted but I know there will be more we can’t resist after our run to Durango and the Red Lobster trip to Farmington for Lowes and Hobby Lobby.
