"A Full Saturday"

On weekends, we have our normal routine of morning coffee, breakfast, hot tub, and then slowly get into the day, doing whatever we have planned or "winging it". This past Saturday was one filled with plans AND "winged" things. As I posted yesterday, Franklin and his family stopped by, just as we were heading out to "America's Best Flowers" nursery/greenhouses. Neil, who designed our deck, had given us a gift card to this particular nursery, as a "thank you" for choosing his company to build the deck. It is outside of Cottage Grove, WI, and neither of us had ever been there. The place was HUGE! There were possibly up to 15 greenhouses, filled with plants and plant related things, plus all of the perennials, trees, and shrubs that are located outside of the greenhouses. We spent a lot of time looking around, picking up numerous plants, etc., and of course, spending more than we had originally thought to do. Thank goodness we don't go shopping together too often! :)
Here is Don inside one of the many, plant filled greenhouses. The variety of colors was almost overwhelming.
After dropping the plants off at home, we went out to "The Bruce Company" to look at what they had in the line of deck furniture. We sat and tried many chairs, but nothing "felt right" (including the prices). By then it was late afternoon, and we'd not eaten since early morning, so we decided to have an early dinner and went to "Cheeseburger in Paradise", out in the "Greenway Station" shopping center, in Middleton, WI. :) We had such a terrific meal......and margaritas, that Don just had to "rest" on the way out of the restaurant. :) (or was he just trying out another type of deck chair?)
