Road Trip. Day 7. Saturday. Plant Delights Nursery. Raleigh.

As luck would have it, this past weekend happened to be one of only 8 open houses my favorite nursery, Plant's Delights Nursery, has every year. They are open to the public for two weekends each season. Please check out their website. It is quite delicious. Everything you've never heard of and then some is at this nursery.
Expensive, but they have stuff nobody else has. I bought the above plants and Mr. Hawthorne bought another bamboo. I actually got out for under $100. To be exact, $99. And that took a lot of restraint. Please enjoy the garden tour.
It's 99 degrees and I ran into a completely veiled Muslim. She was kinda spooky.
The cat ate my mouse.
My favorite quote from the owner, Tony Avent, " I consider every plant hardy until I have killed it least three times."
