At the last minute I was invited on a Road Trip to Moose Crossing a very nice, large, extensive greenhouse operation north of here. Not Canada. We drove past Red's in Wiscasset and the long, endless line to buy lobster rolls for $24 each. We drove over two bridges. Single lanes going north and south. No passing.
And it was worth it. Lovely plants. I was with two landscapers so they bought carts (double shelves) of plants and shrubs. I bought a little six pack of basil, 2 of blue lobelia (mine has dried up and needs replacing), 2 more white astilbe and some yellow marigolds for the woman whose tomatoes I am watering. Some of her marigolds (planted with the tomatoes for good luck) have passed on. So I am going to plant new ones as a surprise.
I wrote about the same trip years and years ago on this blog. Just remembering.
Weather tomorrow should be a bit cooler--perhaps some rain. We might go to the movies. The Painter is still painting. The closets have so many surfaces. The walls, the shelves, the trim, the doors.
I baked biscuits yesterday. Had some for breakfast with my rhubarb and strawberry jello "quick jam". Was very good. We had dinner out. I had Cheese Manicotti. Only half--the rest tomorrow.
The picture up top proves that too much black is not a Good Thing.
Returned Allison Wiers' Anne Boleyn. Not my taste. I quit while Anne was still under the age of 15. Another book is waiting. Alphabet House by Adler-Olssen. I am hoping I haven't already read it.
