Today is the first day of Northville's Flower Sale -- Main Street is packed with beautiful flowers!
Joan and I went downtown to the Flower Sale -- thank goodness for the nice breeze/wind...that sun is brutal!
Sadly, there were no lupines (for me) or poppies (Sue wants to get some for Devon)...but the colors are just breathtaking!
Oooh -- my second choice -- foxgloves!
I could only afford to concentrate on a small budget...still looking for lupines at this point.
I really, really liked these guys a lot.
The colors of these were so beautiful -- it was like a painter painted each one individually.
I love heuchera/coral bells -- I have quite a few at my house, but there were some varieties here I don't have...but that is way more planting than I can handle on my own.
Joan and I ran into Mary Starring at the sale.
I went back for some foxgloves. Two tall plants and two smaller plants.
It is a really good thing that Joan has such a tall car!
I am going to let the foxgloves rest a bit in the back hallway -- a few of the leaves are looking a teensy bit shocky. It is also really windy back there right now.
I need to clear a space for them and I need a break from the sun.
What a WONDERFUL morning!
Here is what else I did with Grammy last night at around 2 a.m.
I softened her face a little, gave her more nose and mouth, added the glass eyes (I got from them from the taxidermy place -- the black pupils were already there, I added the color). The face isn't done yet.
She also got her other fingers/hand/arm attached.
That new hand is larger than the other one, but oh well...I like it and I really like the shape of the fingers.
