Yesterday, Jennifer and I ventured out to Pender Pines, which is an awesome nursery and garden center in Pender County.
They have an incredible selection of plants and Jen and I shopped for about 2 hours.
I got: Red Butler (hehe) lantana, a pink penta, 3 gerbera daisies, some bronze snapdragons, and mixed coleus babies. Jen got me some cacti that rule. One looks like it has purple eyes and antenna.
Here I am standing beside our purchases (the bulk of which are obviously Jennifer's).
They have beautiful gardens to walk through, with all manner of ponds and bridges and garden ornaments, including this very awesome sea serpent made of mosses and things:
Finally, we visited their on-site emus. Last year, you could feed the emus. This year not so much. I must admit that it did kind of hurt, but I was still dissapointed not to be able to do it again.
