Memorial Day Weekend flower shopping

In a previous post I mentioned the flower shopping trip that my daughter and I took on Friday of Memorial Day weekend. It was so much fun spending the morning with her and grabbing a biscuit on the way from our favorite fast food restaurant (that I don’t go to anymore since my weight loss program started)! We had a very nice morning together and went to four different shops before heading home to the big job I was undertaking. First stop was Home Depot because of the magnificent sale they were having on their hanging baskets. I needed something to put in my gazebo and these fit the bill but will hang on my front porch until I get the wood protection painted on the interior and exterior.

I wanted some vines to grow up the gazebo that have blooms to attract more hummingbirds so I found two trumpet vines and a clematis.  They won’t grow a lot this year but in the coming years they’ll climb and protect the wood and the visitors to the gazebo.

Clematis in the center.  We thought it was a white one but it bloomed this week and their blue/purple.

We came home with all kinds of plants and had such a pleasant morning together.  I love going anywhere with my girl!
