Stan and I went to two garden centers over the weekend - Wilson's Nursery and The Farmers Exchange. Both were literally five minutes from our flat - so nice! And how nice to be surrounded by plants again! I recognized so many that I used to have in my yards in Atlanta and Chattanooga—where I was a certified Master Gardener if you can believe it. So, being surrounded by all those lovely plants is like visiting old friends... friends who smell wonderful and feed my soul. I couldn't stop grinning!
You may recall my post about Karen Stock's butterflies? Well, I want to see if I can attract a few or create a stop-over on the Butterfly Highway for the Monarchs and Swallowtails on my balcony. Oh, and provide herbs for my hubby's awesome cooking. So, to begin our little urban garden, we purchased two planters, some soil, and butterfly/hummingbird-friendly plants.
And TA-DA! I have a garden in my life once more - how exciting!
