With a daytime temp of 32C/89F and lots of blossoming flowers in the RV Park my mind is starting to focus on my garden back home and what I want to plant this year. I like garden ornaments and have made some myself for the simple satisfaction of creating something. The garden centers are all in full swing around here and the colorful displays always draw me in because I like to be inspired.
Richard, our next-door neighbor here in the RV Park has some very nice roses in large pots at his site that could win an award in a competition. In addition there are several garden ornaments and solar powered garden lights that illuminate his place at night. He said he buys everything for the garden at the “Old Time Pottery” store in Foley. We had not heard of that store so thought we pay them a visit.
OMG, that place is huge. The entranceway to the building is already very majestic and I had the impression of driving into a golf course. As soon as we stepped though the doors we were totally overwhelmed by the sheer size of the building. This store is situated in a warehouse the size of 2 acres and you will find tons of things for the garden, almost real looking artificial flowers, home décor and outdoor furniture.
For a while Benno and I just wandered the aisles in utter amazement. Think of a large Walmart store filled just with garden stuff. After seeing so much, I could not decide anymore what I wanted so walked out empty handed, can you believe it?
However, after admiring the nicely made birdhouse the other day at the German Sausage Festival and comparing it to the very weathered one here in the RV Park, that has already feathered occupants, I think a homemade one would do fine. That is I am hoping that Benno will tackle that job.
The rest of the afternoon we enjoyed being back at our site. After all, we have air-conditioning, thank goodness. Thanks for stopping by again.
