Drooling Over a Wonderful Garden Center!!!

Hi Bloggerettes!
I wanted to share some photos of a wonderful Garden Shop in Cary, NC.  This is where my sister, Kim and SIL, Melanie and I spent countless hours drooling over all the pretties.  We even went back the second day to get another fix!












 My sister went home with lots of goodies....

I want to thank all of my new followers.  I hope to get over to visit all of you soon and join your blogs as well.  Also, special thanks to all my bloggerettes who are so supportive of me and my blog.
You always leave the sweetest comments.  Big puffy, squeezie hugs to all of you!

~~hugs~~
Sissie

You are having way too much fun! Wish I were there! (Sigh). I love all this and years ago use to travel from crafty Christmas displays because my old boss Virginya use to make these cool hand cut and painted wood signs. I miss her and her crafty heart! She always made me smile!
Your sis had a blast as we can see! Hee Hee
