I've been dragging the boys around this week during spring break, getting some new pretties for the garden. I wanted to go to USF's Botanical Gardens, but we didn't get there yet, and tomorrow's a beach day! There's always summer break.
I bought plants at two places this week - Keep It Green and Elsberry Nursery Farm, both in Apollo Beach at the same intersection.
Elsberry doesn't have a website, just a facebook page. They are small but so awesome. They have really cool plants and remember me every time I go back (once every few months). They even ask how specific plants I've bought are doing and offer lots of advice and tips.
Keep It Green is much larger and has pretty much anything I could be looking for. This was my first time going there, and I was very happy with the service. They even threw in a free tub of ladybugs since my boys found them so interesting. :-)
This is a passion vine with fruit. I have a red passion vine, but this is my first with frut, and the flowers are purple, I'm told. I still haven't planted this.
This is my little avacado tree I couldnt resist! Hubs LOVES his guacamole, and I'm planning to make lots this summer with fresh tomatoes and avacados. If only I'd planted red onions!
