On Wednesday morning the beautiful sunshine woke me at 5:30 and I couldn't get back to sleep so
I got up at 6:30! Early for me! This is what the view from our front door looked like.
I love it when it looks so pretty with the shades of new green on the trees and the blossoms
on the wild cherry trees. Did you notice the fog in the valley? Do you know the old saying
"fog in the holler brings horses to the collar"? My mum used to say that it was the
sign of a good day to get the team out and work the fields.
Well, my best friend, Lois, called me at 8:15 and asked if I'd like to go to
Grey's Greenhouse with her. I sure did.
We passed this
to get to this!
Looking in from the road.
Grey's Greenhouse is in the countryside community of Scotch Settlement
west of Fredericton.
Brian and Bonnie Grey started this business about 25 years ago in their yard.
They had 2 small greenhouses and now have 4 very large ones and,
I might add, the best flowers and plants around!
Isn't this beautiful? It's so clean and neat. There wasn't anyone else there when we
arrived but within 15 minutes quite a few cars had come. It was our first
really nice day in a while so people are eager to get their plants potted!
A new colour of petunia called Phantom.
My friend, Lois, talking with Brian.
Bonnie and Lois.
Just look at that colour! Beautiful!
Customers drive for miles to buy their plants here because they are so beautiful and healthy.
The Grey's work very hard all spring along with their staff getting ready for the
gardening season. They are open daily except Sunday during May and June.
This is a new variety of New Guinea Impatiens called Magnum with huge blooms.
I picked up 2 of these for my vintage wicker planter that goes
on the front deck. They'll be nice and showy from the road.
Needless to say, I'll be going back to pick up the rest of my plants on the weekend.
If you live in the area it really is worth the drive to visit Grey's Greenhouse.
You also get to enjoy some gorgeous scenery along the way.
Just tell them Pam sent you. :-)
I hope you all have a great weekend, especially my American friends
as you celebrate the Memorial Day holiday.
Oh!, the kitchen reno may start next week! Yikes! I still have lots of
packing to do and look for flooring and backsplash and....oh my.
I'm not ready for this. I may not be posting on here as much for the
next week or two but I will try to show some pictures of the process as we go and
I'll definitely be doing a before and after post later on.
I'm still reading you blogs and commenting when I can
and I sure hope this problem is fixed soon.
