Petals from the Past

One cannot fight a craving. Even if it comes in temperatures that rival that of hell itself. "High Mae" and I wanted blueberries, so we loaded up and headed to Petals from the Past and picked and ate, and picked some more. I beleive we sweat as much as we ate and picked. Quite certain. We picked enough for a good cobbler and some to freeze. Before leaving we headed to the 75% off table, where HM loaded up on some fabulous Halloween dishes for her party in October. Then we hit the $1 trailer for gallon plants that retailed between $7-$10 dollars each. We purchased 18 plants for 18 bucks in the likes of butterfly bushes, daises, lantana, basil, sage, etc.
Now THAT is heavenly!
And speaking fo heavenly, Check out Petals from the Past. Owner and curator, Jason Powell keeps the gardens at Petals just divine!

Sounds like an ideal day to me. Great deal on the plants. Make sure you keep them well watered til they settle in.

I have heard Jason speak and would someday love to visit...it is a little bit far for just a day trip, I think but perhaps we might make it an overnight sometime...
