Native Plants Sale at the Adkins Arboretum

The native plants sale at Adkins Arboretum always happens right around my birthday. This is the sale that you buy plants and hedge your bets that you won’t kill them. I have still mismanaged many of these poor plants and killed them off but hope springs eternal. On September 12th, 2014, finding myself with Fiona and no plans, I decided we would take a field trip to the arboretum. The weather was beautiful and since she’d been fussy, a change of scenery was required. native plant sale at the Adkins Arboretum on Shalavee.com

Located on the Tuckahoe State Park, there are many devoted volunteers and employees present to help you with your plant choices amidst the forest and fields of the park. The first day also happened to be the members only day so I just went ahead and became a member.

And then Fiona began her cruise around.

Notice that she’s so busy that you never see her face. She’s the phantom Ginger headed toddler. That’s OK because you can see her face in lots of other places. Like on Instagram and Facebook or in every other post here.

These three women sounded so lovely playing folk music and old-time music under the tree. Pleasant day…until I loaded her into the car and she began to scream until she passed out.

Wishing I’d taken more pictures of the plants? Me too but she was extremely busy and fast. So this is all you get. Deal with it. And hopefully if I don’t kill off the plants I bought before they get planted in the ground, you’ll see what I got. I’m extremely excited about one plant in particular.
