The great thing about this time of year are the plant sales at the local family-owned and operated nurseries. I’ve been going to Kanes Flower World in Middleton forever and I am never disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I can always find the resident felines hanging out by the potted catnip. (FYI…The black one doesn’t like his stomach touched and the orange one loves to be scratched behind the ears).
I found this enormous pot of colorful coleus for a steal! I just couldn’t resist as it will add a nice pop of color to a shady part of the garden.
Who needs flowers when your leaves look this good?
