2009 Johnson County 5th Annual Garden Celebration!
Made it out the 2009 Johnson County Garden Celebration for a little plant shopping this weekend! I love the Garden Celebration! So many great plant finds, lots of info - so much fun!
The vendors are all so helpful - ask any plant question and you're bound to find an answer - and you get to learn about lots of nurseries you may not have known about before - I have a few new places I need to venture out to now!

Nice assortment of hard to find annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs suitable for the central Indiana landscape.
Bring your container to the nursery to fill with plants of your choice.
Though one vendor in particular caught my eye - they had a handwritten sign posted that told everyone, "No pictures!" Nice, considering I am the one loon with the camera. I am not taking pics to steal your bird feeder ideas, lady, I am taking pics for my blog to spread the word about this great event and all the great vendors that are there. Goodness. Are you that insecure about your "crafts" that you are paranoid about people stealing the idea? Puleeze! Get a patent.
Well this year you are NOT in my pics, so no worries - no one will see your little bird feeders - so now no one will come looking for your booth next year - oh wait, is that what you wanted to happen? No? Oops. Yeah, it is called free advertising, hon. And now you're missing out. Darn.
Ok, rant over.
Here's what I came home with! A lovely pink columbine and blue salvia! Spent only $6.50 all together! I should have grabbed the cilantro and catmint I found for $2.25 - thought I would get a better deal at Lowes - not the case though - they were $3.25 at Lowes - go figure! You win some and lose some in bargain hunting!
The guy with the good deal on the herbs is said to also be making an appearance at the Greenwood farmer's market - will have to make it out to the next one!
