Getting Ready for Mother’s Day

We have been busy, busy, busy filling up the stores for Mother’s Day. What are you getting your mom this year? A beautiful hanging basket? A lovely Combo tub? A rose bush? I will probably get Mom a fruit tree. She usually has one of the kids pick her up a Harelson apple tree, but I think that she needs a pear tree this year.

Here are a few pictures of some items that will be hitting the stores this weekend.

The Itoh peonies arrived this week. They are so pretty.

Between shipping and watering, we also have about a third of a greenhouse of Perennial plugs to plant for our summer crop. We have made a little bit of a dent in them since I took this picture.


I wish that I had gotten some pictures of the blooming Hydrangeas that came in this week. They are gorgeous. You will have to stop in and check them out!
