Porn for Zone 4

Yesterday I loaded Sena up in the car and we headed to the Porno Palace for us Zone 4 gardeners, namely Bachmann's greenhouse.

Bachmanns has everything.  Every new flower or plant that your heart desires.  Plus, the people who work there know stuff.  And if they don't, they'll find someone who does.  These people bleed green.

As soon as I got out of the car and walked Sena through their landscape inspiration garden, I started to twitch like a diabetic who's just scarfed down a dozen donuts.  Flowers!  Flowers!  They were all there.

I pushed a cart into the annual greenhouse room and just about went blind from all the color molesting my eyes.  It's like being Dorothy and walking out the door into the land of Oz. 

Sena had a great time.  She loved looking at all the flowers, while I picked up things and put them down, examined tags, fondled petals and leaves like some weird perv.  I'm surprised none of the workers hosed me down, I was that excited. 

They do have hoses there, and they use them regularly.

I tried to pace myself but with 30 minutes I had picked out and mentally calculated how much I had spent.  I had to get out of Bachmanns! 

Here are some things I bought.  I don't buy the basics there because I can find impatiens for cheaper, but I tend to get unique plants that the Cub Foods flower lot doesn't carry.  Stuff like this.






I'll be visiting a few more places this weekend.  I'm a goin' on a bender, y'all!

I admire people that plant flowers and such. I myself can barely write the check to my lawn service people to mow the yard. I am that lazy.

I think it's because we're so deprived for 6 months of the year. Midwesterners get a little bananers after the snow melts.
