One day I’ll have a garden of my own. For now I have a patio with potted plants and places like Annie’s Annuals and Perennials to enjoy.

This was my first time at the nursery, and I almost didn’t make it in time. I was the last person allowed in ten minutes before closing. It wasn’t enough time to explore the whole nursery, but it was plenty of time to be in awe of the plant varieties they carry and take lots of pictures.

The nursery is large and packed with so many different kinds of plants that there’s a guidebook! It’s like the Disneyland of nurseries.

I feel like I could learn a lot about flowering plants from hanging out in the nursery and talking to the staff. Each plant has an info card with care tips and photos of the blooms, too. I love me a good info card, and I will stop to read all of them.

I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to make any good plant decisions in my limited nursery time – oh, but I did! I selected a trio of plants to take home: Dahlia merckii, Papaver rhoeas “Falling in Love,” and Phacelia viscida. Wish me luck that I can keep these plant babies alive and get them to bloom.
