HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all you wonderful Daddy's out there!!!
|Sam and G'pa|
He was truly loved by many and is missed by many too. We were blessed to have him all the years we did before the Good Lord called him home.
Also, as Dar had posted ~ we (myself, Darla and my daughter Staci) took a road trip yesterday to the Cable Garden Fest. It was a wonderful way to spend the day if you're into plants:) especially succulents ~ they have tons of them.
Just thought I'd share a few snapshots from the day:
|the waterfall I WISH I had|
... some of the lupines we saw along the highway ~
they are blooming in the ditches ~ and are so pretty
|Staci ~ admiring the lupines|
from a distance and upclose
~ I can't recall the name of this succulent; but I'm sure Dar knows it. I know Staci bought one of these plants ~ I'll have to check with her. Or you can see it for yourself over at Simply Succulents website. Check them out ... they have an awesome place!
I just love the hypertufa pots sitting around this place.
I wonder if I can get Dear Hubby to build me an arbor THIS BIG!
Such a pretty color combo ... the patriot hosta with the maiden hair fern and the purple coleous.
Everywhere you look ... there are little succulent plants and sedums tucked into the rocks. Each sporting unique and interesting features.
There are THOUSANDS!!! of succulent plants to choose from at this nursery ... very cool :)
They even sell topiary turtles!
Yes ~ it was a wonderful way to spend the day:)
Watching my baby taking pictures ...
... and waving to her and Dar amongst the flowers.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
