Amelia Island Garden Show At Last

Ahhhhhh... finally.... the garden show.  Lots and lots of color, options, pretty and available.  The show was successful beyond anyone's wildest imagination - just what our economy, psyche and yards needed right now.  I focused on eco-friendly drought tolerant plants native to our area and ended up with some tropical sage and a locally produced form of goldenrod.  I'll be putting them in our butterfly garden out back.  I love that most drought-tolerant plants attract butterflies.  Almost like there's some sort of plan...

Handily I ran into my neighbor Monty and his mother, my friend, Marcia and he gallantly guarded some of my purchases while I contemplated spending more money or entering the butterfly exhibit that they'd just attended.  Happily for everyone, I chose to spend more money so that we can have our own butterflies.  Thanks. neighbor.
