It's a Summer morning at Trish's Garden Center and Shop...and she is busy watering the plants!

Trish: Hi, it's early morning here, and all the plants and pots need some serious watering. This Chicagoland heat wave is such a change from our cold late Spring.

We finally got the roof frame up on the shop---though all the roofing hasn't arrived, but at least we are dry inside the shop now and open for business.

El stopped in on her way to Vickie's for work. 

El: Trish, could you pot up a rose bush like this in a white pot for my mom. This is exactly what she needs on her apartment patio and her birthday is Sunday.

Trish: Sure, how about for tomorrow, I'll call the farm and Ben can bring it in on the truck tomorrow with the weekend's supplies.

Zoe: Well I love all the blues...what an assortment, and that cute little gnome.

The girls continue to browse as they wait for Vickie to show up and open the door to Vickie's Vintage.

Carly: You have so many different green plants this year.

Carly: I've always wanted a greenhouse.

Carly: So many ideas! I love the donkey pot---!

El: I love the natural vibe inside the store!

El: I think you everything a city dweller would want for their home and garden. 
There's Vickie, we have to go.

Carly: Trish, is mid-July too late to book our wedding flowers?

Trish: Since your wedding is in October, that would be no problem. Just start clipping ideas from the internet and magazines, so I can get an idea of your taste, and we will start from there. How about the week of the 15th?

Carly: Great I will get Jeffrey to get an afternoon off---so we can really concentrate and I'll let you know.

That was fun...I love when the girl's stop and chat, now to get ALL these flowers watered. It's supposed to be in the 90's again today.

Always good Planting at Trish's --
Please Come Again!

Author Note:
My own garden, yard, and Father's Day swallowed up my time last week. I hope you all had a lovely week. I'm also working on a huge project for the NBDCC (National Barbie Doll Collector's Convention) to be held right here in Chicagoland in Rosemont. The Theme is 'Decade of Destiny' which is the 1920's. 

I'll be traveling back and forth for the 5 days of the convention + some volunteer time as our local doll club is host this year. I can't share much on this until after the convention. But, I'm so excited and the workroom is a certified disaster.

Here's a sneak peek....

The garden will have to wait, I'm back to my dungeon workshop, tons of paint, Modge-Podge and itsy-bits and pieces.

Do You have any HUGE projects going on?

  1. Amazing detail, so much to see! The new shop looks great Sandi. I look forward to hearing about the convention. It's been quiet in my doll world, too much to see and do in the garden... Hoping to be back soon. Happy Summer:@)
