whew!!! abbey is a genius...she and i worked on fixing my blog together....but really she figured it out...thank God.
i was to say the least quite devastated...but what relief i am feeling now...i will not be changing my layout....forever.
thank you dearest abbey.
and now i can post....yippee!
i just had to get my hands in the dirt one more time before it is all frozen and just too cold to be out there.
on a relatively mild day...abbey and i visited another one of my favourite local nurseries.
moore and moore garden center.
i really love this place but find it expensive...but sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do.
i had to plant some things that would weather the winter...so off we set out.
like i said the weather was beautiful the day i bought...
...a flat of.....all white violas...sorbet coconut...don't those sound delightfully delicious
...one small.......chamaecyparis obtusa 'nana' ....true dwarf hinoki cypress
...one very healthy looking helleborus... ivory prince
...a cryptomeria globosa 'nana' dwarf japanese cedar
...one small nandina harbour belle....stays very small but produces berries just the same
of course, by the next day when i went to plant these beauties it was below 4o's and the wind
was crisply biting at any skin exposed...face...ears...nose...
but like i said a girl has to do what a girl has to do.
i am sure if i had neighbours that were close enough to see me
they would say oh it's just that strange gardening lady "again."
i love how it turned out and i so want to go back to moore and moore.
i guess a little dirt for the hands....was just not enough.
