Off to the North Carolina Mountains !

We had a fabulous last day at Sat. Morning Market and many thanks to the loyal customers and supporters that showed up to bid us adieu.

Now, we are really jazzed to head off to the Smokey Mountains later this week! We are journeying to a town called Hendersonville (about an hour from Asheville) to vend at their big Spring Plant Jubilee show Memorial Day weekend.

We are eager to get up there and show them some of our fabulous unusual plant offerings and hopefully, they will be equally as eager to buy them !

Pic here is of Chimney Rock, which is situated near Lake Lure, just a 1/2 hour drive from Hendersonville. This is one of Annie's all time favorite places for hiking and the views are to just die for....speaking of.....we tried to do the hike a couple of years ago, but between our heaving breathing and major electrical storms in the area, we had to turn back before completing the entire trek. Some of you may know that the Chimney Rock location was used in the movie "The Last of the Mohicans", and if you have ever seen that movie, than you know the mountains and the vistas are just gorgeous but the hike is not for the weak- ha!

We are MOST excited about the fact that we can get out of this Florida heat for awhile ! Forecast for up there is sunny this weekend, day time temps of low 80's...night time temps of high 50's/low 60's...yeehaw !

We are taking the laptop and the cameras so hopefully, will be able to post some pics and blogs while we are there, so keep checking back.

Our Main Man, Rick, is going to be chief house sitter/cat feeder and plant waterer/whisperer while we are gone, so we are lucky to leave everything in his capable hands.

After we return, we will be getting ready for a plant show down in Punta Gorda on June 12/13...after that,who knows where we may pop up !

Stay tuned, stay cool and stay gardening !
