I had a perfect lunch date yesterday. It was complete with an enjoyable lunch partner that provided me with entertainment, plant and seed shopping and a new piece of garden equipment.
My littlest gardener and I didn't let snow stop us from our shopping. After reading so much about hellebores lately at Fairegarden, Teza's Garden and In the Garden I just knew I needed to go back to the ones that I left calling out to me the day before. We braved the snow for a quick look at the hellebores and picked out these two. One is a Red Lady, the other a Blue Lady.
When we went in the store we found the seeds. My littlest gardener chose these Shirley Poppies. I've never grown them before, but how could I refuse her pretty choice? I also picked up the bush zucchini I grew last year. Great for a small space and produced just the right amount of zucchini for us.
She later chose this very useful wagon for pulling plants or as she said she would use it for, her "purple kitty".
We enjoyed a piece of cheese pizza while she sang the Alphabet song loud enough for everyone to hear. I can't wait for her to help plant the seeds she chose when it warms up. That's what I call a perfect day!
