Yesterday I met a friend at The Connecticut Flower and Garden Show. This is not something I would normally attend, but I hadn’t seen my friend Leona in over a year and had never met her newest little girl. So off I went….to sit in traffic for close to an hour…
Getting there was fine, coming off the exit took close to 30 minutes..then finding parking another 15 minutes (and $9), then to stand in line and wait to buy a $14.00 (!) ticket another 15 minutes…..It’s a good thing I really wanted to see Leona!
Sure, I like looking at gardens and pretty flowers as much as the next person, but I don’t “garden.” Anything I’ve tried to keep in the house has died…In my classroom, has died, and outside, has died. Plus I hate dirt under my nails. I hate dirty fingernails period! The Hubs likes to garden though and he is already planning it out. He was at the Ole Homestead yesterday working on the bathroom, so couldn’t go with me.
I did run into a couple of other teachers from my school and my besty, Deidre, showed up before I left.
Leona and her girls left before me, but they had been there for a bit when I finally got through the doors.
Her oldest was fascinated by this fake fire
Here are some of the exhibits:
Luckily I did find some vendors I enjoyed and got some kickass earrings and a pin from Etc. Design. Love, love, love her stuff!!!
Also found the Hubs his birthday present – shhhh!!!!
