Bringing in the Bedding Plants

It's "N" Week at ABC Wednesday, and the plant NURSERIES in Alabama
 are rapidly bringing in the bedding plants. 

I was downtown at Holley's Farm and Garden Center this week
 when a Bonnie Plant Farm truck delivered flats of flowers and vegetable plants.
 Above, I chose a few pink impatiens for my shade-loving hanging baskets,
 but I would have loved to bring home some vinca, daisies, petunias
 and begonia. Below, a Bonnie Plant Farm employee stocks the outdoor shelves.

Now, I would be remiss not to mention that Dallas County is home to Wright's 
and Bearden's, both excellent NURSERIES too, and we will be heading 
to Plantersville for tomato plants.

Gotta love homegrown tomatoes!

I tried planting sunflowers this year from seeds. They are growing good so far. It seems like all our small nurseries are closing up. I noticed another one this year, a shame.

Oh, I'm getting excited about tomatoes! The ones in the grocery store are never as good as homegrown.
Beautiful shot!

I am still down south in Florida for the winter, but I will be back in Connecticut before May 15, which is the safest time to plant annuals. No more frost after May 15. Some of these plants will find their way into my wagon.

Jack, we're supposed to have low 40s this weekend! That is COLD for this time of year.
