No sooner had all my lingering purchases finally found new homes than my friend Sandra organized her mid summer plant sale. Off we went, (DH & I!) to enjoy iced tea and cookies. (macadamia nut, white chocolate and cranberries!)
How she got her gardens looking so perfect after the horrific weather we’ve experienced I do not know. But how beautiful and welcoming! Yes, I came home with “just a few necessities” and promises of seedlings later on.
It’s at this time of year that tidying up the gardens shows new spots that NEED filling. Ever willing to oblige!
The resident husband at the sale offered this tale to my husband:
“I went to Elmira the other day and found an interesting looking book at the used bookstore. I thought I’d like to read it so as I carried it over to the cashier, I noticed that inside the front cover was my own name!”
Similarly, DH observed that I seemed to be buying back my own plants from his wife…. To be very clear, I WAS NOT!
Thank you Sandra and Monika! I was feeling edgy having an empty potting bench! 🙂
