All Good Things

So starts a new week. It’s suppose to be warmer this week, more normal spring temps. And sunnier. I’m excited about it. Shafts of sunlight are beginning to poke holes in the clouds.

I have a short work week this week, because my friend who lives in the Adirondack Mtns is coming to visit me for a few days. She’s coming Thursday, until Sunday or maybe Monday morning. I’m taking her to a gong bath Thursday night. Friday I’m going to take her to some incredible greeenhouses, full of tropical plants. It’s a place S took me on the last excursion we ever took, before she came back into his life. It’s got a 200 year old lemon tree in it, it has all kind of tropical plants. It is like walking into Jumanji. The plants are all over the place, on the ceiling, up the walls. It is warm, it smells like heaven. There are paths through the plants. They sell the plants but many people just go there to see them. They also have a huge herbal green house. My friend is an avid gardner, I know she will love it. It’s called Logees, and they have a great website and will ship plants everywhere, if you want to google them. We will get lunch somewhere along the way. Saturday we’re going to Newport. Not sure what she might want to do there, maybe see a mansion or two, maybe to the cliff walk past all the mansions if its a nice day. Maybe just shop, eat. It’s always fun, and beautiful there.

I’m really excited about all of it. Only working 3 days, seeing my friend, all the things we’re going to do.

I have a showing on my house today, so keeping my fingers crossed that they like the house better than the last people did. Have I mentioned that I am so ready to be living in Florida? LOL. My sis is going to the house today with a friend of hers. She’s going to get some more measurements for me, and check to make sure all the utilities are on. Probably wants to get lunch at our favorite sandwich shop there too, lol. She loves my little community.

Wishing all good things for all people today. The Buddhist Matta prayer…Love and light, all.

  1. That really sounds nice!
    Is the Logees place the one with the 200 year old lemon tree? Wow, that is really awesome. I wonder if they have seeds from it or little trees? Could you send me their website addy please? I would love to see what all they have.
    I have a lemon tree here, but have to bring it in when winter comes.
    You must have a lemon tree down there when you move!
    Gardening down there is a whole new experience in itself! Totally different.
    I learned a lot about the plants when I lived there. And I REALLY miss it!!
    What I would really love to do is make a atrium/greenhouse area with only Florida and tropical plants inside it.
    I want to sit under my travellers palm tree….smell my lemon trees and others…bird of paradise..
    I have a king sago too. That was a odd find In this area for sure!
    And I would love to have a pond that has a waterfall and fish in it.
    Ha….in my dreams I guess.
    When I was there the master gardeners were always asking me about things. Seems I did a lot of the impossible. And they wanted to know the outcome.
    Some said it couldn’t be done…but..don’t tell me that, because it will. 😉
    Gee I miss it there.
    You will love it..
    Sarasota is supposed to have a lovely garden place.
    I wouldn’t know because HE never wanted to go. 😦
    But I hear it is beautiful.
    If you want to know some cool places to go, I can probably tell you. Some are off the beaten tourist path too.
    My husbands only concern is what kind of toys he can buy. And not what I can grow……I miss it.

  2. Oh… I forgot to tell you, there is a documentary I believe called Gardens around the World.
    It Is really nice to see.!
    They had some really old orange trees! They have been there for a looonnnggg time.
    They take care of them. And are planted in terra cotta planters.
    All the gardens are so beautiful.
    If I had a wish of a job I would want or could have, it would be that. Taking care of a garden like those. 🙂
