Georgia Southern Botanical Garden plants sale ~ Outdoor Wednesday
Remember this Hydrangea " Fuji Waterfall " that I saw last year at our botanical gardens. I have been asking all over town for it since last summer. Well I went to the annual spring plant sale at the Georgia Southern Botanical Gardens a few weekends ago and lo and behold there it was.
There was only one pot left and two ladies were trying to decide if it was worthy of taking home. I was trying so hard to be patient while inside my mind I had scooped it up and was half way back to Savannah with it.
After what seemed like a lifetime one of the ladies walked off but the other one hung on to the pot, twirling it around checking it out and then she looked at me and asked ... do you know anything about this one ~ OH CRAP ! I'm not good at telling lies, just ask Miss Lois she says my eyes go to dancing just like my daddy's ... I was just before spilling my guts and telling her it is gorgeous and that she should buy it when her friend called for her, she plopped the pot in my hands and walked off .. woohoo it's mine !!!!
I do hope she found something equally as beautiful or at least a treasure that she had been longing for because she passed up a gem in my eyes ...
I also picked up an Oakleaf Hydrangea
and look at how much he has grown they get up to 15 ft quickly
and this little guy is already making himself at home on it.
a couple of sedum's and some native plants that I have never seen before and thought I would like to try.
this is the purple eyed grass today ~ The flowers are tiny but abundant they start out a dark purple and lighten as they get older.
I had never been to The Georgia Southern Gardens it was chilly the day I was there and not a lot had started to bloom so I plan to go back soon. It looked like an amazing place with lots to see.
There was craft vendors set up and local farmers selling eggs and veggies
the plant selection was wonderful if only I had lots of money, time and a big ole truck I could have done some damage ..lol
I will definitely be back in the fall when they have their next plant sale ..
I'm joining Miss Susan over at A Southern Daydreamers for Outdoor Wednesday so ya'll come on along and see what all the other wonderful bloggers have to share today.
Happy Wednesday ya'll
hugs from Savannah, Cherry
