A little bit of this …

Black Swallowtail on Parsley

… and a little bit of that.

Well hello there, my peeps. How’s everyone on this fine but cloudy day?? Ziva and I are wonderful, thank you for asking.

Today I’m adding into the Boutique the new plants we picked up this week: Pindo Palm; white African Iris; Drift roses in lemon, peach, red, and white; ‘August Beauty’ gardenia, ‘Nikko Blue’ hydrangea; Texas Compata Sage; Dwarf Wax Myrtle; Dwarf Cherry Laurel; Dwarf Powderpuff Bush; Fatsia japonica, and ‘Peter’s Peach Creek’ Sweetspire.

I’ve already updated the Boutique for the plants that were restocked: 3-gallon yellow Lady Banks roses and weeping Yaupon Hollies.

I found a good supplier for herbs, so I’m picking these up next week. Herbs can be edible, medicinal, and host/nectar plants for butterflies (that pic is of a Black Swallowtail on parsley), so I’ll put all the info I can about using herbs all of those ways into the description part of their pages.

Check this out, y’all. I got this notification this morning from WordPress, and it made me so very happy. I think my little business is doing pretty darn good considering I’ve only been open since mid-June. So many, many thanks go out to all of my customers. Y’all rock!!

I have the BEST customers!!!

When I started talking about opening an online garden center that specialized in native plants, I got a lot of negative comments back about how no one wants to plant natives. Well, I think y’all have proven all those negative people wrong. So I’m gonna keep focusing on natives so we can all do our part to keep the bio-diversity of our own little corners of the world going strong. Thank y’all so very much!

Happy diggin’ in the dirt.
