Couldn't Help Myself, Herbally Speaking!



My Herbal Companion, Bonnie and I spent Saturday morning at the Garden Marketplace at the Annual Symposium sponsored by the Penn State Cooperative Extension, Phipps Conservatory and Shadyside Academy.   There were lots of plant people there.  It was so tempting that I just had to put an order into one of my favorite herb farms, Mulberry Creek Herb Farm was going to be there selling.  I got a whole tray plus one plant.  BTW, you have to either go to Mulberry Creek or find out where they sell their plants.  They don't do mail order any more.  Now I just have to pray to the weather gods that the weather will warm up quickly.  The Herbal Husband is already asking when he can plant them.  Because I bought several scented geraniums, we have to hold off until the temperature at night is consistently into the 50's.  It is still up and down.

As you can see by the banner page, it has been a beautiful sunny albeit cool day because of the wind.  If the wind would just calm down, it would be perfect.  Tomorrow is supposed to be a bit warmer and then we take a downward turn and then back up again for the weekend.  Typical spring weather here in the 'Burgh!  Hope you had a great day.  Talk to you later.

Nothing like attending a garden show to get the inspiration (and pocketbook) going...enjoy those sweet new plants. We are headed to the 60's this weekend ....none of us will know how to act! My daffodils are about 6-7 inches now. Everything is going to be very late this year. But I am so ready for that first glimpse of green.

Yes, TO. Glad you are finally moving up the temperature scale. Our daffs are just about done!:( The trees are blooming. Spring is a beautiful thing and you will get there soon. xo
