We woke up to another sprinkling of snow this morning. However, my husband wanted to go to the local garden nursery to get a certain type of lettuce seeds for his sister's husband who used to grow them when they lived in England. He has requested them as he can only eat the more delicate type of salad leaf.
A look around a garden centre with a coffee and cake break in the cafe is always welcome, so off we went....
Plants had been potted up ready for Easter
and the displays were colourful....
...in contrast to the countryside around the centre.
The sheep were not in the fields.
The farmer was a solitary figure putting up a wire fence.
The land that's now a golf course was white
with snow and, of course, empty of golfers.
We found the type of lettuce seeds needed and also purchased
some flower seeds as well before returning home.
Just an hour or two out and about, but seeing
the bright flowers in the centre was good for the soul.
