A Garden Tag with a Colorado Connection!

Reclaiming That Maintenance Path!
A Plant Tag with a Peruvian Connection!

A Colorado Nursery Tag in a Pennsylvania Garden!
When I got online this afternoon, I was pleased that Bernideen from Bernideen's Tea Time Blog was having an "Open House" and invited me to participate.  So Bernideen, you won't believe it when I tell you that in reclaiming a maintenance path in the garden and some garden space, we dug up this tag from the previous owner.  We have been in this house 23 years!  It has both a Peruvian (four o'clock flowers) and a Colorado connection.  The plant was from a nursery called Little Valley Wholesale Nursery in Brighton, Colorado!  The plant is long gone, but the nursery still is in existence!  It's Kismet, Bernideen!  One day we're going to meet Bernideen!  I'm looking forward to it!  Hope you all have had a great summer day!  It is hotter than you know here in the 'Burgh.  We are supposed to get some relief in rain and temperature tomorrow.  Talk to you later.

You're so welcome Bernideen!

Amazing you found that little old tag; sad to say plastic doesn't decompose, and you have the proof.

Yes, Terra, it was the most pristine plant tag ever! Most of my plant tags information fades by the end of the season if we plant them toward the sun! Thanks for stopping by.

Amazing story. We could use a lot more rain actually. We only got about a quarter of an inch...but at least it has cooled down.

Sorry you haven't had rain Peggy! Wish I could share some with you.

What a great story, Nancy. The world really is a small place after all.
