Marilyn was negotiating some hanging flowers and I wandered around with the camera. It turns out, a nursery is a good place for shooting. Lots of color, shapes, textures. Lots of stuff to do on a warm, sunny (at long last!) Saturday.


Flower of the Day – June 11, 2017

Author: Garry Armstrong

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.


  1. They are great places for taking photos. I don’t often get to the nursery, but the gardening department of our supermarket is full of good subjects. I can take photos of the plants I cannot afford to buy.

    1. Our grocery’s plants were pretty pathetic this year. They are usually better. But the nursery is great because it’s so BIG. Garry took a LOT of pictures, too. Like almost 300. Enough for all kinds of blogs! I was busier making sure there were no caterpillars on the plants. There were a dozen of them on it and I had to get it sprayed and get all the crawlers removed. We had a very LONG conversation about the horrors of caterpillars and how horrible they were and how very much we don’t want them back. It is the fervent wish of EVERYBODY.

    1. I think Garry just discovered that. He is not a gardener. He likes plants, as long as someone else takes care of them. But he like being around them and he’s perfectly willing to lend a hand if someone else (like me, for example) takes the lead. I don’t think he’s ever planted anything, but he waters and rakes.
