Car Full of Plants

June 15th, 2016

This past weekend Mr Chiots and I headed off to Vermont for a quick visit to a nursery with a lovely garden and lots of rare plants. Of course I came back with a car full of plants.

What made it home in my car and where did we go? Find out tomorrow. I’ve been busy catching up after traveling and madly planting things I purchased this weekend.

    Is the large leaved plant a native magnolia?
    If so, I will send you a photo of my 10 year old specimen, you will be amazed how it had grown!
    Looking forward to read what else you got…

      Yes, it is. There is a local nursery that has a lovely specimen, can’t wait to see mine grow.
