I had coffee with one of my instructors to tell him I was leaving. I'm a huge fan of who he is as a teacher and as a human. He does a lot of film work as a sideline, and has the coolest ideas. He's so interested in everything that our planned 45 minutes of coffee turned into 2 hours.
Since I was already out and about I thought it was about time to buy some tomato plants and annuals for the patio. Yikes, inflation has hit there too. I ended up with smaller tomatoes for cheaper which I may live to regret and tried to be very strategic with purchased annuals, supplementing them with some things started from seed. But man, sort of moderate to meh geraniums were $8-10. All the cheaper ones left at our local nursery were salmon, and I wanted hot pink and white. But another woman and I teamed together to sort through 50 flats, searching for red for her, and my white and pink. I love to find someone else on a mission like me. And we succeeded.
DD and her BF are safely in Scotland, recovering fron jet lag with a walk in Holyrood Park and a trip to her favorite ramen place. Her parents ate leftover pasta for dinner and enjoyed watching the baby bunnies who are unfortunately nested in our front planter box. But they're adorable and likely have their eyes on my new plants.
