On Thursday, my Mom and I took a much anticipated day trip....
After an hour and a half drive, our excitement mounted as we finally reached our destination, the Pee Dee Farmers Market Annual Plant Show & Sale!
It didn't seem we could get there fast enough!
Among the the acres and acres....
splashes of color and lush greenery, we felt we were in Heaven on earth!
We found the usual impatiens, ferns, bougainvillea, petunias, etc...,
but there were many neat unusual plants available...
Below is one I would have loved to brought home...some sort of corkscrew plant,
but it needed a wet, boggy environment to flourish,
definitely not what I have, so I had to leave it behind....
This was a new one on me....Donkey's Ear...
Gerbera Daisies Galore....
Fresh Produce....& Strawberries...nestled among lush ferns!
We've made our purchases, loaded our wagons, and are heading home!
I had four "helpers" ....Ashley, David, Coco, & Bailey,
....to plant Saturday, until the rain came quickly,
and we had to stop...now I guess I will have to finish on my own!
Unfortunately, although it was 85 Friday, we are now facing a freeze warning tomorrow night!
I will post pics of my completed plantings when the weather clears and I am able to finish!
My plants are accumulating frequent flyer miles,
while being moved back and forth between the garage and porch/yard...dodging the frost! :)
