Mr. Plantfreak and I worked all day yesterday cleaning and potting in the nursery. Mr. Plantfreak spent all day saturday rebuilding the greenhouse that Devil Dog destroyed. He's going to start on a small propagation house after First Monday. Boy, we're getting Big Time now. Wish us good luck and big sales for this coming First Monday weekend!

He only wears a certain type of blue jeans, certain shoes, and I had to get him a lint brush so he can keep his hoodie jacket (that he wears when it's hot or cold) free of dog hair and assorted stuff.
I think I have a prima donna on my hands.

I've been feeling slightly overwhelmed and this was a little pick me up! Thanks Kjirsten!
I nominate Rock Candy just because she is such a hoot!
I also nominate The Rustic Victorian because I love her vintage style, AND she's an Alabama girl (via Oregon, one of my favorite states).
Last but not least, I nominate Rhondamum, she loves all things parisienne and The Killers...what could be better?!
Off to another day...you know I'm only working at the paying job three days a week now, but it seems like I'm busier than ever! I'm due for some serious down time.

Mr. C is about 80-something and most of the time he piddled around while I worked...he even put on some Ella Fitzgerald. It was pretty nice to have music to listen to while I worked. When it came time to mulch he insisted on carrying the bags out for me and helping. You know how sometimes people try to help but they just get in the way? That's all I'm going to say about that. By the time we finished mulching I wasn't sure who was going to pass out first! I hope he was ok last night. I must say though the garden is shaping up nicely...and for a weekend house he is going to be overflowing in veggies, herbs, and flowers!

What a doll!
This is Gage- or as I like to refer to him...Mini Mark! My grandmother met Gage when he was just a tiny baby and the first thing she said was that he was a carbon copy of Mark. I didn't believe her then but I certainly do now.
Here is a pic of all three kids. Mr. Plantfreak wanted to know who the twins were with Gage. Ummm....we are looking at pics of YOUR grandkids. Sometimes all you can do is shake your head.
Here is a shot of the baby, Gianna. Unbearably cute!!! She has Mr. Plantfreak's eyes. I don't know about his smile since he is a grumpy old grizzly. Gaga bought him a coffee cup with Grumpy on it when she came out. We always said that the grandkids should call him that instead of grandpa. It fits.

Gray's Nursery made another order from us, Yay! I also found out about another nursery named ...Sage Garden Nursery! Is that not hilarious?!? Her last name is Sage, don't know if she is any relation to the Mobile Sages though. I emailed an availability and I really hope she wants Louisiana Phlox because I still have a buttload left.

Positive parts of the trip...
I bought a cargo trailer on the way down. Most women want jewelry, but not me! I like non-title vehicles.
Saw Dad and Page and we went to our collective favorite restaurant, Vinnie's. BTW, if you are ever in Daphne, AL, you have to go to Vinnie's! And if you go on Friday night...just walk in and yell "Hey Sute (Sootee)!", and Grandpa Sute will most definitely smile and wave.
I had lunch with my ABFF (that's Alabama Best Friend Forever) , Vicki. Funny, we picked up right where we left off as if I still lived in Foley.
Bought some seafood!!!! I miss fresh seafood. Grandpa Sute told me how to cook oysters on the grill. Get an aluminum muffin tin and plop butter, garlic, parmesan, etc. in with an oyster and put it on the grill. When the oysters begin to curl, remove and eat. It was nirvana! We threw in a dash of tabasco just for giggles. Now I wish I had bought more oysters.
Brought back some plants from Grandpa Sute's. He sprouted some Loquat trees from seed and sent them back for me to sell.
I got my baby back! AJ is back at home and up to his same old tricks. He and Cody have actually, dare I say it, (whispering) gotten along. I hope that doesn't jinx it!
Negative parts of the trip...well, I'm not dwelling on that. I'm trying to cut down on negative energies (and people). It's bad for your health.
