You go to your favorite plant nursery, surround yourself with the plants and grin stupidly.
Let me tell you about the latest plant nursery encounter that left me senselessly grinning.
I moved about 6 months back but am still slowly getting to know the area.
Well 2 days ago a friend gave me directions to a restaurant and referenced a plant nursery called Strange’s as a landmark as he explained.
He casually mentioned how large the plant nursery was so I couldn’t miss it and that the restaurant was located the next block up after passing it.
My heart skipped a beat as I started thinking about how soon I could go check the plant nursery out.
After my friend said “plant nursery” I totally stopped listening and even had the audacity to get an attitude for a moment.
Not with him, with myself for missing such an awesome plant place.
I did not have a real reason to be mad except for the fact that I am a plant nut who would have loved to have visited this nursery when I first moved here during the summer.
It was hard to believe that this gigantic plant haven was a few miles away from me all this time and I hadn’t a clue.
My visit could have come much sooner and I would have definitely bought another plant I don’t have the space for.
I really thought I had explored all of the plant nurseries in the area by now.
After 2 minutes into daydreaming about the new plant nursery my friend asked if I understood his directions to the restaurant and that was the moment that brought me back to reality.
The VERY next chance I had….
… You guessed it.
I was speeding off to the nursery to experience the delight for myself.
Well, this is indeed one of the largest plant nursery’s I’ve been to.
The nursery had everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING.
Hundreds of succulents,
monstera leaves as big as poster boards,
You name it and and some form of it could be found.
I’m dancing inside by this point.
I mean total BLISS guys.
Have you every gone to a nursery and no matter what you were dealing with felt total happiness in that moment?
As a working mother who wears so many many hats,
I have slowly been learning to take time out for myself and enjoy the little things.
Since plants make me happy I don’t mind driving a few extra miles to visit a nursery or a spend a few extra minutes at the grocery store to see what selection of plants are in stock.
It has become a welcomed therapeutic activity.
