It's that time of the year where garden centers are in full swing and there are gorgeous plants everywhere. I shopped on a weekend, so many items had been picked over, but once I laid eyes on these babies, I was sold.
I picked up four pots. 2 white, 1 pink and another lighter pink. I wish they had coral-y shades, but they didn't. I'll be keeping an eye out.
They're mighty photogenic though, aren't they? I have this one set up as my desktop wallpaper.
I've recently taken a liking to lavender, so for a couple of dollars, I picked this one up. While it isn't the English variety (the kind used for ice creams, pastries and little sachets for your lingerie drawer, the kind I wanted to get), this Spanish/French lavender is just as pretty. This variety's oils are usually used in perfumes.
I still want English lavender.
I also got a small pot of rosemary, as my original plant didn't comeback after it's second year. Hopefully I'll have better luck with this one!
What this post is basically telling you, is that I am basically an old lady at heart.
Oh, and espresso gelato for a midday pick me up. I finally got around to buy a box of sugar cones. They're so much tastier than their wafer counterparts!
