Flowery Tale

This weekend we went to Young's Greenhouse in South Paris to check out all their beautiful plants and find something for the grandmothers for Mother's Day.  Check out that beautiful bed of marigolds...
And, of course, you have to have pillows for your soft! 
Each year I let them pick out a plant of their own.  This year they skipped the flashy annuals, in favor of these perennials.  They like the idea that these beautiful flowers will keep coming back year after year.
Good choices, girls!
We spent almost 2 hours touring the greenhouses, "ooohing and aaahing" over all the wonderful plants, collecting fallen flowers for keepsakes, and just having a blast learning about all the different kinds of plants that are available.  Finally we picked out a couple of flowering shrubs for the grandmothers, and, while I wasn't looking, they snagged a 'Sensation' Lilac for my Mother's Day gift - what a great surprise!
