Bright (not so much) and early Saturday morning a sweet friend and I grabbed our coffee and headed for Essex.
Each year the Garden Club hosts a plant sale on Mother's Day weekend. It begins when the bell rings at 9am. I'll give you a hint ... if you want the "good stuff" you need to be in line by 8am.
While waiting in line, you get to know those around you, share a few gardening secrets, have that second cup of coffee and perhaps a homemade treat made by these lovely ladies.
There is also a Treasures sale ... I'm so using that line when we have our tag sale ;)
They have some home good items as well as garden goodies. I did have my eye on a couple topiary fences but they were quickly nabbed ~ darn!
I wasn't able to take as many pictures as I would have liked due to the relentless drizzle. Note the white tents with the their shop signs. So cute. The Garden Club members all wore hats decorated with flowers. So much classier than name tags don't you think?
On the other side of The Green there were annuals to be found, succulents in handmade cement urns and beautiful herbs. I did pick up a beautiful pot of herbs to give to the hostess of the party that we attend Saturday night.
This was my first round ~ I managed to grab the desired shade plants on my list. Within a matter of minutes the entire back of my SUV was filled to capacity as well as the back seats.
The best part of these sales are the prices ... CHEAP!
Jane and I did a little poking around in the local shops. I am on the hunt for dresses to wear to the weddings we are invited to this summer.
We rested our weary feet while enjoying a delicious lunch with a glass of wine ~ living the life! :)
It was the perfect day with the exception of the torrential down poor that caught us unprepared ~ wet is an understatement.
