I headed out early to the Merrifield Garden Center and, when I got there, discoverd I had the place to myself. That's because it was freezing cold and pouring rain. Delighted, I pulled up the hood on my raincoat, grabbed a cart, and went to work. (The one outdoor employee in sight was huddled in a shed, wearing snowpants and a parka -- he clearly thought I was nuts. I just waved.)
About an hour and a half later, I emerged from the nursery with numb fingers, pants soaked from the knee down, and enough plants to fill my pots with an interesting fall/winter/spring arrangement.

Beautiful!! I miss fall planting. By the time I get back the weekend before Thanksgiving, I'm not sure what will be left in the nursery. It's still really warm, so my planting beds still look great. Lady
You never cease to amaze, my dear hermano.
