Today I went over to the local nursery
and gift shop mostly for something to do.
It's not a great time of year for flowers.
Most are very picked over
and look pretty seedy.
( The 4 inch pots are a dollar, larger ones
are buy one get one free.)
I don't know about you but I'm tired of watering.
There is usually a large variety of things
to see.... not so much today.
This sweet little fairy garden is a fun project.
I've seen it wonderfully improved upon..
I guess it could be changed for the seasons.
The fairies may want to go ice skating.
Eveything is not so cute or beautiful (to me).
I guess these are Pittsburgh Steeler trees.
It took me awhile to figure out why one
would want one of these ugly things.
I'm a firm believer that
TREES SHOULD BE GREEN !!!
These are very cute but it's a shame
that marketing and profit margins
make us rush the seasons as we do.
This stand never changes.
It's good for all seasons and very tasty.
Maybe it should change a little for those of us
who visit often ????
"Variety is the spice of life".??
Although I must admit, I never go home
without a couple of snickerdoodles.
These are strangely colored tomatoes.
They weren't labeled as to type.
Does anyone know if they are grown to look like this?
All and all, I didn't find my visit very exciting.
I guess it's because summer is ending.
( I hope).
and fall isn't here yet.
