Yesterday I woke up feeling a bit in the funk. It was the fifth anniversary of my father's death. However, hubby and I decided to make the most of the day. We took our dog, Murphy, to get his nails trimmed at PetSmart. He also got some treats and food, lucky pup!
We then drove out to Parran's nursery in Ida, Mi. It's a nice drive out by so many farms. Driving around in the country always puts me at ease and gives me sense of peace.
The season is winding down at the nursery, but we were able to pick up a tray of Munstead lavender all cut back. I am replacing some Hidcote that we lost to excessive rain/hungry bunnies. I've had pretty good luck with Munstead in the past so we will give it a go.
We also got some wonderful Mexican heather. It's not a perennial here in zone 6, but I will give a shot at bringing it inside during the fall and winter. I love how it looks at our front entry.
We also got some baskets for the front porch 2 for 10. Can't beat that for late summer color.
Love the colorful plants on our front porch.
We ended the evening by the entire family, including our granddaughter, going down to the Independent Dairy for ice cream. So all in all, not a bad Sunday after all.
