The DH was on his trip, I wanted more lavender plants, we needed cat & dog food, and maybe 2 more pairs of capri pants like the navy ones I had bought 2 weeks ago at the outlet mall...the outlet mall in Michigan City, Indiana.
Hmm - looked like a road trip to me.
Here's the catch - while I had taken Monday off work, I didn't want to spend the whole day out, I wanted to sew and I had a nasty sinus issue going on. I could deal with those constraints.
Up at 4:45 am, out of the house & on the road at 5:30 am. Round trip (263 miles, estimated drive time 5 hours) with stops at the nursery, the Michigan House, gas station, feed store & outlet store. Back home at 12:30 pm, in time for lunch - all of that in 7 hours!
The final score - 3 lavender plants, 2 silver mounds, cat & dog food, and no capri pants (sold out - bummer). I also discovered that the Michigan house grass hadn't been cut after I had made arrangements two weeks ago! GRRR!!!
The new lavender plants join the previous one in front of the front stair hedge.
The silver mound (artemisia) plants got cut in half to be planted in the narrow bed along the west side of the garage.

The front pots have really filled in nicely.

The tomatoes are setting fruit nicely,

The afternoon was spent on the couch, surrounded by dogs who knew I didn't feel good - very comforting.
Next up - what I got sewn over the weekend.
