The girls all piled into our car to
head out to the local greenhouses
in the Susquehanna Valley,
driving through some beautiful farms,
passing some fellow travelers
on the road.
We stopped for a filling
buffet breakfast at Peachey's
one of our favorite Amish restaurants.
We made the rounds to our favorite
greenhouses, Engle's, Riverside
and Garden Treasures.
There was so much to look at,
statues nestled among the plants,
fountains for every type garden
even some beautiful gazing balls.
As if this wasn't enough to put you
over the top, upon entering the
greenhouses you are assaulted
by a riot of color,
an assortment of hanging baskets
aisles upon aisles of the most wonderful
The heady aroma of damp
soil and fresh loam
just envelops you.
I don't know about you
but that smell is intoxicating
to me and I am like a kid in a
candy store, wanting one of everything!
They offered an array of pots
and for those of us with a need for
they had all sorts of pots preplanted.
All of this running around made us
ready for a treat before we headed
back to the cabin, so we made a pitstop
at one of our favorite places and
indulged in some refreshments.
Sounds like a perfect day doesn't it???
