On Saturday I joined my mom and our neighbors as they went to Walter's Greenhouse. It's a family-run business out in Hardy, Virginia and it is so fun. I had never been but my mom kept talking about it like it was some kind of circus or carnival. I thought, how special can a greenhouse be? and very quickly upon arriving I learned. Very special indeed. I felt like Alice in Wonderland or Charlie at the chocolate factory.
They had so many flowers, hanging and placed out and arranged in gorgeous variety. There were like ten different types of mint. Lettuces I had never even heard of! And succulents that looked like little alien dinosaurs, both alone in little pots and grown into wreaths and frames and bunny rabbit sculptures.
