plant travels

I have a pretty extensive plant collection almost entirely comprised of houseplants. I'm addicted. Throughout RVA there are tons of nurserys, plant shops, and garden centers. Here are a few of the gorgeous plants I've encountered!
This one isn't actually in RVA, but I noticed this Hot Cocoa Rose bush in a nursery in Maryland and I love it. The color is amazing. If these did well in containers I'd already have one!
These pitcher plants were right here in my backyard! A local nursery had them and I was so impressed with how nice they looked. I could keep these inside but don't quite have the room for them.
 
These are all from my favorite greenhouse. They have such a massive selection and I love just wandering through staring at all of the amazing plants.

I hope to start an inventory of sorts here soon with all of the lovelies I have at home. ♥

baseball weekend

 
Saturday I went up to Frederick to see Kyle and watch a baseball game. It was a doubleheader since Friday was postponed, so that gave me more time to watch Kyle and to spend massive amounts of money on food and stuff my face. I ended up scoring a front row seat behind the plate! The games went well, but in the sixth inning of the second game it started pouring. Luckily I'd brought an old umbrella my boss had given me and it was big enough to keep me and one of the player's girlfriends dry. She sat behind me during the game so I invited her to share and we got to see the Keys come back and win both games that night, both wins happening in the bottom of the 7th!
I always look up the concession offerings before I visit parks and had picked out what I wanted to try. Here are my spoils. I started off with a helmet full of chili cheese fries that were really good, and I believe they make their own chili there instead of that weird canned chili. Next I tried the crab dip, which was really salty and kind of disappointing for Maryland. But the big star was the fried green beans! They were amazing!

The next park I'm visiting doesn't have any offerings that are super exciting, but I'm sure I'll find something. ♥

brunch & plants

Last Saturday all of us gals who work part time at the kitchen met up for brunch. Admittedly this was my first experience ever...am I last the last millennial on the planet to have brunch? That aside, we met up at the aptly named restaurant, Brunch, in Richmond and it was absolutely amazing.
Brunch is fairly new and is the morning counterpart of Lunch.Supper, which is also absolutely amazing. I'm really fortunate to live in a city with such fantastic food. I had the smoked salmon cake bennie with dill-dijon hash browns and I would happily eat that every morning for the rest of my life. That fresh house hollandaise was the highlight of my month. Of course I had to order a side of the Supper collards, which might possibly be the best collard greens I've ever eaten. I don't think I've mentioned how good the food was, have I?
The atmosphere is great and I love the painted (wallpaper?) floral pattern on the walls and (of course) the many boxes lining the ceiling that teemed with plants. After spending a few hours screeching like a bunch of hens and seeing our favorite chef, I headed over to the Lewis Ginter PlantFest with my friends Carrie and Kelly.
This was the first year I've been and it was great! I picked up a 13lb bag of worm castings, a purple basil baby, a citronella plant for my balcony (which I've already started propagating!), a purple pepper plant, a cute little ogre ear, and some yarrow. I'm almost ready to move my seedlings outside so these were some nice additions to my plant collection.

How was your weekend?

link love

I found Lauren Sumner Studio on Instagram and I have fallen in love with the leaf pottery.

The whole ordeal with Tyler Wade being called up to the majors, taking an Uber from Scranton to New York, arriving during the 7th inning, AND the Yankees picking up the fare just cracks me up for some reason.

I'm loving these succulent pots!

After seeing a viral post on Facebook, I found out that Buster lives at pretty much the best hotel ever.

There's a new species of wasp named after the Zygons on Doctor Who.

West Elm has some really amazing planters and stands!
