Yesterday was a busy day

It was a beautiful spring day. Our 6th day in a row with temperatures over 80 degrees. 64 is our normal average for this time of year. I worked outside most of the day.

I went to Trinklein's greenhouse today. (Just 3 miles from the house.) They have over 18 greenhouses. Six are open to the public. I picked up some pepper plants to go with our tomato plants. I even found 6 Roma tomato plants. Right kind, right Nancy?

I bought dark pink wave petunias.

Two pink geraniums to go with the asparagus fern I wintered over in the basement.

Coleus, two varieties and a sweet potato vine. Hopefully this year the squirrels will leave it along.

Nicotiana, I bought 4 of them. It doesn't look like much in this picture, but they really get pretty.

These are my Blue Bells. They are every where.

Grow baby grow! I can't wait for the fresh peas, or the lettuce, or the spinach or the radishes.

Missouri Columbine.

We had company last night. Flat Creek Farm's hubby came for a visit. It was hard for me to get a word in with the two blacksmiths talking non-stop. He promises to return next week with a whole truck load of "stuff" for the hubby. I might even get another lilac bush out of the deal.
No quilting done, but surly the spring rains will hit soon and I will have to stay inside.

Today I will go to my paying job. I will leave the hubby at home to tend to planting the garden, watering the flowers and playing with the dog. Oh how I will miss the beautiful spring weather!

Wow, that's a familiar-looking truck there at your house! :) I will remind Mr PW about the lilacs so he can hopefully make a delivery soon. Your garden looks wonderful, as do those plants! I must find some bluebells. Seems everyone is talking about bluebells lately. They're so pretty! I'll enjoy some sun today for you since I was trapped at my job yesterday :) -Tammy

Trinklein's is great, isn't it!

I told Jim to beware - that you have the walmart goods on him.

Let me know when all the MO chatters get together - I want to be included!

Love all the flower choices. I just got some trees on sale at Lowes (I am in Missouri as well) and tomorrow I am off to get flowers. I adore radishes! I was stuck at work yesterday and today and missed the sun but tomorrow- look out.
