Today Tony and I picked up our herbs for our Herb Faire that begins Friday.....When we left the house the sun was shining...just a beautiful morning. We stopped for some flowers to add to our "mini-gardens" and had lunch. Then stopped at home to pick up extra tables etc. and took both cars - and THEN driving to the store....drip..drip...drip....on my windshield...by the time we started to unload the herbs this is what was happening....truly a MONSOON!! BUT we had to unload, needless to say we were soaked thru - thank goodness it was warm...actually quite muggy which made you feel sticky - if it weren't for the "heavenly" scent of the herbs I think I could have been "grouchy" !!
I still made Tony (even though he was soaked) plant the coleus in the flower box...he was smiling though cause he loves to be around the plants!!
I stayed for awhile to set up where "who and what" is going to be displayed and tomorrow I will clean the outhouse, plant the mini-gardens in old agate bowls, price what needs to be priced and clean the store...I ordered a banner for the back porch and it should be here on Thursday - from http://www.folkartbythecracklingcrows.blogspot.com/ - she put the banner I ordered on her blog!! Something different and I love it!! New candles and tarts from http://www.crowsnestprimitiveshoppe.com/ - all very herbal - will be in this week too...Lots of new goodies to share with you!!!
