Fun at the Expo

Good morning the weather has been fabulous so I have been outside from daylight to dark and haven't had a chance to share all the fun Bobbie & I had at the Savannah Garden Expo on Friday. The first thing we noticed was the new set up, everything looked really pretty with lots of flowers everywhere the second thing we noticed was that there was lots of new vendors and that a lot of our favorite vendor that we have shopped with in the past where not here this year which was disappointing. We didn't buy much but we did walk away with some really cool new ideas, met some really great people and enjoyed each others company. A day with Bobbie is always a treasure. Thank you girlfriend love ya !



I got to meet new blogger's Miss Annie & David of ... Hey Plant Man!
They have Mitch Armstrong Exotic Tropical Plant Nursery in St. Pete Florida.
It was so much fun meeting them they were very busy. Their display was really nice lots of different types of plants and very colorful . They had the really hot new plant Joey from Australia and I bet they didn't take any of them back to St. Pete with them.. People were grabbing them up pretty quick .. I hope they went home with nothing more than sweet memories, sore feet and a pocketful of money .. We want ya'll to come back next year .. lol
Go check out their new blog and if you are near the nursery or the market stop in and tell them Cherry say's hi.



Coach/ Master gardener Vince Dooley
The Top Dawg in Georgia always !!
We love our absolutely gorgeous hunk of man Coach Mark Richt
but Coach Dooley is also a gardener !!!
Check out his garden from a piece in the Atlanta Journal - Constitution OH and that is the newbie hot plant JOEY in the planter beside him.



A few things I picked up .. wooden bees, a three tier stand that I think is coming in the house to use as a plate stand during the holiday's it is multilevel and adjustable. A hanging thing to hold flowers which I bought for the front porch but it ended up at the back door, a cute little sign ..lol (you may have to click on the picture to read it )
and a few plants. This blue indigo is really pretty.

We had a wonderful day and I promise to share more pictures soon.
hugs, Cherry
