Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Field Trip - McDonald's Garden Center - Now is the time to plant pansies

I love McDonald's Garden Center. It is right next door to the more familar McDonald's, the Golden Arches in Chesapeake VA. McDonald's is a small chain of three stores. They decorate magificently for every season and it is soothing the the soul to browse among the fruit trees, herbs and roses in the Spring. My favorite time, though, is Autumn. You can see why in the picture above. McDonald's staff is very knowledgeable and generous with suggestions and advice. It is one of those places where I feel happy just to walk in the door.

Hi Annie! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment - it made my day!

It is time to plant pansies! I think I'll do one pot - they don't hold up too well to frost but they come in such cute colors I can't resist having a few!
