What to do on a Grey Day?


A trip to the Garden Centre of course.


Note the two slightly shrivelled oranges at top of frame.

These look like tryffyds.

Spider plants can look attractive.


I had one of those dark spiky plants.  It never looked right in my garden and was a devil to get rid of.

I wasn't tempted and only bought a rosemary which was thrice the price I was told it would be.

I don't know about a grey day, it's pretty white here!!

My mother would have loved to go to the Garden Centre with you but I'm not sure she would have resisted temptation!

Joey: you have snow? Where are you?

Love your visit to the garden center.
I thought the two places I should never work at is a garden center or bookstore. I would never have any of my paycheck left.

Lovely photos.
cheers, parsnip

Map: are you still poorly?

Parsnip: but both great places to work I should imagine.

Lovely pictures Pat, and very cheering in this weather. Though not too bad here yet, but snowing heavily the last time I looked out - a couple of hours ago.

Pat said...

Mike and Ann: you too? I'm beginning to feel deprived:)

Beautiful. This is therapy. This is where people should go when they are feeling grey.

My sister took me and our mother to a nursery near her home. Ohhhh my gosh, I wanted to stay right there, in that plant place.

GG: they are the most cheering places - and they serve food too:)

How wonderful! I looked at both parts---Nothing like Beautiful Flowers to perk one up! All the colorful blooms...And all the Exquisite colors---What a lift I got just looking at all your wonderful pictures, my dear!
