Changes afoot and the “Photo of the Week”

Construction

Happy Friday Friends!

If you’d been driving by our nursery early Monday morning, you would have seen quite a sight. The whole staff was gathered round on a frosty morning to lift our geranium tent by hand, while Marcy manned the forklift.

Why are we moving our geranium tent, you might ask…

Well we are building an addition to our greenhouse. The same talented crew that remodeled our old bathroom, has returned to help us expand our indoor space. They were even undaunted by the blustery weather yesterday and are back today hard at work.

We want to say a special thanks to all the sweet ladies who came out last week for our very first Amaryllis class. We had such a good time with you and we just loved your beautiful planters!

This week’s “Photo of the Week” on Facebook was hands down Margaret Brown’s pretty picture of a bird nest in her Japanese maple tree.

Looks like the birds got creative with moss as well. Did you see what type of bird was nesting there Margaret?

Happy Friday Friends!

Our thanks to everyone who came out for Marcy’s lasagna bulb pot class last week. It looks like a fun time was had by all. And remember, if you missed the class, we are happy to help you create your own lasagna pot anytime. Just come in and ask.

October seems to have gone by in a flash. It’s hard to believe that Halloween is just next week. As you can see, it’s been getting positively ghoulish around here. Deb and Ginger created this spooky pumpkin pole.

If you drop by on Halloween, you’ll get to see our ‘Bad Hair Day‘ and vote for your favorite costume. Our employees are busily planning their costumes and the competition will be fierce! We will of course have some slimy but tasty treats for kids who come in costume. We can’t tell you what they will be, it’s a secret!

There were some really great photos posted to our Facebook wall this week. After some deliberation, we went with Betsy D. Sauther’s mushroom photos.
