No, not for you, for me. Thumbs up

A friend called this morning and said after Gardener Supply had used her garden for a photo shoot this past week, they left all the plants. She kept what she wanted. Asked if I'd like to come get some. Fueled with two cups of coffee and a sugary doughnut, I braved morning traffic and it was worth it. Her circle drive was filled with every kind of herb, and tropicals, annuals, and fruit trees.

Here's what I picked up. It's only a small percentage of what was there. There was also a huge stag horn fern that she didn't want to keep.

Did I mention I don't have the greenhouse up yet?

Lovey dubby Sandi as usual you have great taste. I'm with you on the 'running out of time" thing. I still have stuff in nursery pots. YUCK!

I moved pots almost all day from front courtyard to back and from back to along the fence line where we'll put up the hoop along the fence. Still not through. DD is going to help us put up gh Sat. The garage looks like a plumeria ranch!

The winds from the other day blew my last pink plumi to death. Broke off the last branch it had. Phooey.

Are you going to save the branch and root it or did it get blown completely away?

She's a generous hostess also. She has annual Halloween parties and Easter parties for friends and family. We look forward to them and take our GS and his parents.
