I was standing at the nursery…

caught between the rows of blooming citrus (ahhhhhhh) and Sweet Olive (ahhhhhhhh) and I swear, it was the single greatest experience of my life! This year. And I came home with a new Loquat tree and a lavender trumpet tree...ok, it's more of a 4 foot stick in a pot, but I have high hopes. And a mess of Begonia's for the front yard and a big mess of plants for the 3 hanging pots that are going to look fabulous. I've almost finished staining the floorboards on the balcony. I might paint the walls but I haven't decided that much yet. And a good thing I have my water barrels full because we're in another drought. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/orl-bk-drought-florida-forecast-030609,0,4565765.story But I'm tellin' ya, if you live near Lukas nursery, go stand in the back by the citrus, just past the pomegranates. The combination of the Sweet Olive and the citrus flowers is nirvana!
