In fact I did more than just fill my boxes. I started shopping well before the sale opened. The garage sale outside (fundraiser for a new projector) had these lovely planters just calling for me. Who am I to argue with a planter?
Once safely stowed in the back of the van, I made my way inside for a sneak peak at the plants all lined up and ready to go.
The volunteers were buzzing around, making sure all the final touches were done. Everyone did a fabulous job!
Not only were there tons of plants above the tables, the undersides were stocked full too.
There was a tremendous selection of Hosta’s. Foliage of all varieties. I spotted many that I have in my shade garden.
There was also a table filled with veggies, ready to be transplanted into the garden. Later in the sale I picked up a couple more tomatoes and some broccoli. I had to get new plants for those planters. Riiiigggghhht, that’s my excuse.Once the doors opened, bedlam ensued.
3 x planters
2 x stonecrop
1 x sedium
1 x tomato Sweet Millions
1 x yellow cherry tomato
2 x Broccoli
1 x A herb that’s name escapes me at the moment.
1 x Pnk Peony
1 x Canna
And a perennial that I lost the tag for on the way home. Anyone know this one’s name?
Later in the afternoon I got an opportunity to plant those tomato’s, broccoli and herb. Then I received a call for the Lynette, the club’s past president. She let me know I had one a raffle prize. Wine! Definitely one of my favorite parts of the day.
The kids? Well, I left them at home. Those plant sales are way to hairy for me to keep an eye on them. They played outside with their father while I shopped, but they still appreciated the part of the sale that I brought home for them.
