Spring is here!

On the last day of spring break, we went to Bennett Nurseries–Voted “Best Nursery in Huntsville” for 5 years in a row.

I consider Bennett’s to be a part of a wonderful learning experience for kids. It is very kid-friendly with it’s outdoor train set and the free sodas that they offer from the old-fashioned drink box.

My teenage niece, Princess Buttercup, and I spent an afternoon wandering the 6-acre nursery, sniffing herbs and selecting annuals. We came home with bunches of fresh lettuce, spinach, basil, parsley, lantana, and other stuff to plant.

Hope you all enjoy the pictures that I took!

Princess Buttercup spotted the first butterfly of the year.  Some type of swallowtail.

Look at the dolphin!  I tried to get all fancy and blur my background with Photoshop Elements.

Although Bennett’s is a huge nursery, there are plenty of staff on hand to help answer questions.

Oh, and p.s: Be sure to check back on Wednesday. I plan to post on the next place we went, Bennett’s sister store, “Across the Pond.” It is huge, too, and has lots of cool home pond stuff like fish and garden novelties. 🙂
