The whole day was simply awful. I can't pinpoint all the awfulness, but it just was. I didn't bloom where I was planted at all... let's just leave it at that. But... I finally fell into bed late, late... thinking that surely I'd better have a change of attitude for our usual Saturday trip... and Voila! It was a lovely day full of adventure.
We began in Bevier picking up groceries. I don't know what this tree is, but it is spectacular. It isn't locust, but maybe Catalpa??? I had to snap its photo before we actually began our journey.
This is an ad on the side of our grocery market. As long as anyone can remember the original Bull Durham ad was on this building. It has been repainted a couple of times because it was so dim, it was almost a memory. I watched the movie because of this sign! (well, maybe partially because of Kevin Costner, too) haha..
We traveled to Kemp's Restaurant in Clarence and then on to this greenhouse near Hunnewell. (That's pronounced Honey-well, for all you guys from away from these parts!). It's a five greenhouse affair operated by some wonderful Mennonite families. They were specialing out their plants, and we bought some magnificent hanging baskets, begonias, and petunias and geraniums, some little verbenas... Lovely... I'm snapping their little photos in the morning if the bunnies don't get them tonight.
