An hour of fun

This afternoon I went to the plant nursery all by myself. Wow, that was so much fun. It is so much easier to actually think about what I need and want when I am there sans kids. (thanks Babe!)
Anyway, I went for a little bit of Salvia "May Night" to finish off a bed we built for the roses. I ended up not only getting the salvia, but flowers for my hanging baskets and my window box, and this beautiful hibiscus plant (completely frivolous, but won't it be beautiful on my deck?) It has 3 gorgeous flowers on it, and tons of buds just waiting to open. The nine days of rain that were predicted have been broken up by a couple of sunny days, and it is supposed to be sunny again tomorrow and Friday, so I should be able to get my planting done. Yeah!

It is such fun going to the nursery and dreaming and planning what your garden will look like. One of my favorite things to do!
