My neighbor had the afternoon off from baby sitting her little granddaughter yesterday and we headed for Santa Cruz. You'll never guess what I forgot to bring with me.... Yep, I forgot the camera. So no pictures of ocean waves and surfers, or the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, or adorable cottages with white picket fences and pretty flowers.
We wandered around town a bit, dropped by Starbucks for some caffeine, then drove around looking at houses and the ocean, all the while dreaming of living there. On the way home, we stopped by the Green Thumb Nursery in Los Gatos. It's like walking into a gardening wonderland and me with no camera again.
This is such an adorable giant teacup planter my daughter in law found at Walmart, but was at a loss of what to plant in it. We've both looked, but nothing was appealing to either of us.
I almost did a happy dance when I found the perfect plant at the nursery. It's an angel vine wrapping around a little rusted metal arbor.
Look how sweet the angel vine looks in the teacup planter. She's thrilled with her new plant in her beloved teacup planter. I told her it's an angel vine for an angel... She liked that...
I'm amazed the amaryllis is still blooming and couldn't believe my luck when I was able to take Sammie's picture without the usual squinting her eyes, or running for cover whenever I point the camera at her.
