|some of the many plants I bought.|
After a miserable March and an April not much better with rain sometimes mixed with snow and awful wind storms bringing down branches and sometimes trees here in Northeast Ohio. May has arrived with sunshine and nice weather. I did have lots of daffodils and narcissus all over in April, but nothing else in the way of flowers and even very few of my trees had any leaves starting to show.

On Saturday May 5th my sisters Elaine, Suzanne and I headed out for our yearly trip to Bluestone Perennials in Madison, Ohio up by Lake Erie to shop for perennials with the $75.00 gift certificate our younger brother, Phil gives to his sisters for Christmas each year. It’s an event we look forward to. On the way there we stop at Sugar Loaf Greenhouse, an Amish run greenhouse with lots of flowers, too. My sisters bought some there, but I didn’t buy anything because I live close enough to go there on my own and that way Elaine’s trunk wouldn’t get filled up with three of us shopping. I did go back on Monday and bought four beautiful rose bushes and four flats of annuals to plant in pots and longer containers to put on the graves of my mom and dad, my son John and my six-year old granddaughter, Megan.
