My husband and I spent some fun time together yesterday. Well, at least it was fun for me; he isn't much of a shopper but he indulged me. Our children had plans for the day so we left out early and visited two farmer's markets. We had to make a trip to the nursing home, which was the only downer for the day, but we needed to try and feed Nell and check on her. We then had lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. The real treat though was going through some of the shops in our downtown area. Noblesville has some of the sweetest little shops.
One of my favorites is the Logan Village Mall. It is a store that rents space to vendors and you just never know what you'll find there. This particular vendor was called The Salvaged Garden.
I thought these bird baths were quite unique. As windy as it is here, I can't imagine that it would last very long in my back yard. Maybe if I had a deck where it would be a little more protected.
On Friday I was with a friend and we happened to pass this house. I couldn't believe the massive window boxes they had on every window! Seriously, every single window on the front of this large two story home had the same kind of arrangement.
I believe this person just might be a little compulsive with flower arranging.
This is one of my favorite homes in the downtown Noblesville area. The owners have done a beautiful job with not only the house but the landscaping as well.
Here is a picture of one of their poppies.
It has been a great weekend even though I was disappointed that I couldn't join the other garden bloggers in Chicago. Maybe next time.
