2014 nursery trip

So I took off 4 hours in the middle of the day Tuesday for this year's trip out to NM Plant Company with the ever-fabulous Bev, Teri, Aunt Marianne, Mary, and Annie. Yay! No Stacy. Boo! We met up at the SFCC fitness center parking lot at 10:30 and then headed out. I picked out plants for Jim and Stacy's place, to help with the curb appeal, paid, then went back and got my own.

The ever-fabulous Bev:


Teri and Marianne:

The haul for Stacy + Jim (6 red geraniums, 6 coleus, 6 dusty miller, 2 red petchoa):

I got: 1 white geranium and 2 purple petchoa for the front door pot; 3 scarlet beardtongue penstemon, 2 purple and 1 white sweet alyssum for the front bed; and 2 basil starts. Closeup of some of the alyssum:

Here's my final haul:

This was Bev's second trip — she'd gotten TEN FLATS! on her first trip, got five this trip, and swore she was done for the year. Here she is with one of the NM Plant Co. guys, helping her load up her car:

Got to NM Plant Co. by 11:00 and we were all wrapped up by noon. Then we were on to San Marcos Cafe + Feed Store for the traditional post-plant-shopping Ladies' Lunch. Bev outside San Marcos:

Hello from everyone, Stacy! We missed you!
