Yesterday we got up way too early to leave in time to get to the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL by 8:00 am. There was acres and acres of farm equipment of every shape, color, and size, but I was most impressed by the flowers. All of the landscaping was temporary. Just pots of flowers set on pavement then surrounded by mulch. It did reinforce my desire to plant mums this fall. I didn't get any tonight, but I'm thinking about picking some out during my lunch break tomorrow. If I wait until I get off work, I will be too tired to care. This display was just inside the main entrance.
This is one of the more unusual pots of mums that I saw. I'm going to see if I can buy some of these for my flower bed. I bought a package of pink tulips tonight, but I think it is too early to plant them. I think the ground needs to be cool enough that they won't start growing until next spring.
I had a good day at work today, but I only took one picture. I made a bunch of cakes using discountinued kits. We have a big box of them that we need to use. Plus we have a bunch of kits that are in stock, but that we just don't sell that I would like to move out. We only have room to carry about 100 different kits at one time. Hope I have time to play some more tomorrow!
