Hi all,

I spent the day at my favorite nursery.  I have been so good this season,
stayed away from the nursery since the Spring.  I was Jonesing.... I
"needed" to buy new plants.

I have this lovely, but very empty, totally prepared 60' x 17' border to
fill up.  After all it's Fall, that's when all the sales are going on.
Just so happy and satisfied that I had to talk about it some more... I
talked the ears off the nursery workers.

I bought....

Kniphobia (red hot poker)
Campanula (blue clips)
Russian Sage (2 of them)
pink mist Scabiosa
blue mist Scabiosa
a yellow daylily
a pale pink daylily
and another daylily I can't remember the color
a blood red 'mum
a very light pink 'mum
2 bearded iris, I hope these bloom like the pictures... a bright cerulean
blue and a dark midnight blue.
2 Miscanthus sinensis (grass)
a hardy Pampas grass
a red climber rugosa, Henry Kelsey
and my favorite find for the day is a beautiful cream and green Euphorbia
"Snow on the Mountain" spurge, the flowers are green striped and it is
really cool.
