Yesterday Eldest Daughter and GD Kate came by to pick me up and take me along to the Plant Shop we like the best. They seem to have to best prices and often have unadvertised specials. I was there 2 weeks ago and bought too many plants so I decided to have more restraint this time. Well, I didn't exactly succeed. I had bought some Petunias last visit but now there were gorgeous double ones and I could not resist.
These are the ones I got earlier. Pretty but not nearly as fancy as the doubles.
Last time I picked up a Chocolate Mint and after I got home I was sorry I hadn't bought an Orange Mint as well so I did that this time. I use a lot of Mint in pitchers of water mainly from my large pot of Spearmint which I've had for many years. I have to dump the entire pot out and divide it every year. It gets very root-bound. Usually there's no problem finding friends that want a wedge. If nothing else I can take it to the thrift store. They'll be happy to have it and no doubt it will be sold by the end of the day.
It's a cool and partly cloudy day. I've done some housework, picked a new bouquet of Peonies for the table and done 2 loads of laundry. Time to sit on the porch.
Thanks for visiting today, GM
