Shopping for Plants and Flowers

We have had such a cold, damp and wet spring so far! We’ve only had a very few nice days since early April. This weekend, however, was gorgeous! The sun has been out, and it has been warm. Yesterday morning we went to our favorite greenhouse to get some plants to decorate our tiny yard.

Since this is the first nice weekend we’ve had in weeks, the place was packed! Mark, Ben and I had a great time, but the two big boys weren’t too keen. Ben was glad to be out in the fresh air and sunshine, and was very content in his stroller.

Isaac was worried about being stung by bees, and we did see a few since there were so many flowers. We explained that since he didn’t look or smell like a flower that he had nothing to worry about. He didn’t believe us.

Jonny just wanted to go home. In retrospect, I should have had him pack his little digital camera to keep him occupied. He was happiest when I lent him my camera to take pictures with. Here’s one that he took:

We bought some patio tomatoes, herbs, shrubs and flowers. Each big boy bought a flowering plant of his own. We stopped buying stuff when our cart (and our van) ran out of room.

We’ll have to return on Friday since I’d really like to buy some nice decorative outdoor pots. I love plant shopping!
