In this peaceful surroundings, we had Thanksgiving dinner at my sister's house. It was so nice and relaxing and she put out a wonderful dinner! The weather was gorgeous so she set up a table under her canopy in her back patio and we were surrounded by all her plants. She and Mitch are deep into a big season for their nursery and her yard is filled with the nicest plants as well as what they have down in the nursery over the bridge. Here's some of them...
They are at the St Pete Saturday morning market each week as well as the Tarpon Springs market too which they started this year. She wasn't too happy with their spot there last time but they are moving to a better corner this week. If you're around, come see them! Mitch Armstrong Nursery!
I also had another Thanksgiving dinner on the Sunday before, at Barb and John's house. Her brother, Dennis, and his wonderful and funny wife, Carol, flew down from Wisconsin for it which was so nice. Dina and Josh were there too and we all ate like pigs! So I had lots of good food this week and even got some to bring home! My new find this year was the cranberry relish from Fresh Market..omg, I've bought it 3 times already!! It has orange zest, apples, walnuts, real cranberries and honey in it and it's to die for..try it!
December will soon be here and it's going to be a busy month. Kath asked me to come to Arkansas for Christmas but I can't find a reasonable flight for it. I've got Lynn's ornament exchange coming up and the stocking girls party so I'm looking forward to both of them too. Hard to believe it's almost 2012!
Hope you had a wonderful week too!
