Last Friday night, my pal Sandie and I visited one of our local nurseries for a special event -- a Wine Tasting and New Plant Introductions event*.
Yep. Michigan wines. New plants.
It's hard to go wrong with that combination! (Tom joked that if the event also included yarn, I might never come home. . . )
It was a fun adventure, even though the wines were . . . meh.
And there really weren't that many "new" plants. (Most were "new" to this particular nursery, but not really "new" to obsessive plant-followers. Like Sandie and I.)
But we had fun sipping and strolling. . .
through the nursery selections.
We also found the most hideous collection of garden gnomes ever. They had biker-gnomes (an entire collection) and Marliyn Monroe gnomes and this guy. . .
I mean. Really? Can you imagine this Elvis gnome in among your dahlias? Nightmare-fodder! (And $45 to boot!)
Fun night! Wine, plants, laughter. And plenty of inspiration!
