OK…I’m a plant-a-holic!

Friday I filled up the back of the Durango with flowers from a local nursery.  This is my kitchen!!!

Ash Grove Nursery 013

See that cast iron skillet?  I wonder who put that there?

Ash Grove Nursery 009

Saturday I went with Tammy, her husband and his friend to Ash Grove, MO to a nursery I’d never been to.  Uh-oh!

Here are some pictures from our yard~before planting the new stuff.  Sunday Mickey and his friend were walking around the garden and said they counted 50 plants that needed to be planted!  I said did you count the 6 packs as 6?  They both said NO!

Shari, your garden/yard is amazing. I wish I like to do that type of thing, but when it gets hot I run for the A/C.
I love the little house/shed, it looks so inviting.

Wow, Sheri, you have a great yard. I can't imagine how much better it will be once you get the new plants going. So lush!

Your gardens are beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing. Your blooms are way ahead of us. I love the blue bottle tree. I have a bottle tree and other just on rebar, but I need more blue bottles. I need to drink more! (I have one half gone in the fridge now.)

Wow! It all looks fabulous! Don't you love Oscars in Ash Grove? Haven't been there in ages, but it's just an awesome nursery....... What's up next week? Maybe we can do lunch and hook.

I've been back here several times to take your garden tour! I am just in awe of all your beautiful plantings! It looks like the tropics! I can tell you love to dig in and connect with the earth!
You must have a secret to having such healthy and lovely blooms!
I have been doing lots of weeding here in between trips to the house for more Ibuprofen!
LOVE your garden decor which speaks of the artistic flower child you are!!

What a great garden! You girls out there and your big gardens are a blast! Til I get settled, all my plants and vegetables are in containers. Yesterday I looked at how tall the tomato plants are and wondered how am I going to move all these?

When the time comes, I guess something will turn up.
