Made it to the garden center for a lovely half hour choosing seeds with my gift certificate. I worked in a green house during the transplanting season years ago. Today the humid warmth in the hot houses and the scent of potting soil and tender green plants brought back pleasant memories. I took time to walk along the paths which in a few months will be bordered with potted perennials and shrubs. Behind one of the hot houses were the peonies which had been potted up in the fall and then wintered over under a heap of wood shavings. They were uncovered to the warmth, but none had sprouted. I looked at the tags and saw they were new varieties and I'm more interested in heirloom flowers.
Yes, QC, White Flower farms is the ultimate in wish books, and indeed, pricey. Hopefully I can collect good plants a few at a time. Will definitely try local sources [in KY] on-line as well as urseries I can visit.
I also bought today collapsable dog cages which can be used to transport the cats. And cat litter--and cat food--and bottled water.
Space in the vans is becoming tight and I have been warned I may have to part with or store some items. How to choose?
Books, antiques, CATS, fabric and such have priority. The laptop is behaving annoyingly tonight. Maybe its me--not sitting up straight and sort of leaning on the keyboard!
