We went to a garden store today to pick up some more plants for my “garden.” I had no idea there were so many different kinds of tomato plants, and I couldn’t resist picking up one called Mr. Stripey. Seriously, who gets to name these things?? Meanwhile I now have an emotional attachment to Mr. Stripey and I’ll be pretty sad if he doesn’t make it.
The highlight of the trip for the kids were the baby ducklings under the heat lamps. There were nine in the large tub, all chirping and running around looking adorable. Thankfully the HOA frowns upon poultry and livestock, or one might have made it home with us.
I guess the kids will have to settle for Mr. Stripey.
