I'm afraid I wasn't among those rushing out to buy Black Friday bargains. While visiting family up in Dallas I just headed out Into The Garden.
After all the frenzy of Thanksgiving; 9 adults, 2 children and a newborn baby under one roof, David and I took the opportunity to head over to this lovely garden store in Dallas. I hadn't been there in years and was so glad to find it still there.
If you are like me then you find it wonderfully uplifting to walk into a nice garden store.
There is usually the sound of water tricking though a disappearing fountain. Here a couple of old crows bob up and down as the water spills from their beaks.
The walls and shelves are filled with all manner of gifts a gardener would delight in opening on Christmas morning.
And you know how much I love clay pots. I love the ones that are made of a slightly different clay and are of a different shape.
Just a feast for the eyes. It didn't take me long to find just what I really needed. David was taking a look at the rain gauges and he spotted the one attached to the metal dragonfly. He had seen this one before at Ronnie's garden a few weeks ago and commented how much he really loved it. Nothing like the seal of approval. It's in the bag!
