Native and rare plants: Jack-in-the-pulpit

It was a bit of a trek (2-hour drive), but we made the day an adventure. I hope I haven't bored my reader buddies with the photos, but I like to save them and post them. This is the end of them. Poor hubby drives in order for me to take pictures and can't enjoy the view.

What helped me was taking photos of the plant info! I bought 9 potted plants and had a wonderful time. They are all safely in the ground. We had a cold front move in from the Arctic, and woke to 5 C. this morning. I think they will be OK.

My photos of our journey include:
fire in NapaneeTyendinaga Mohawk Territoryfuneral in Deserontotagged trains (hubby likes trains!), lunch in Napanee (beside the canal), and lots of sights, smells, and sounds.

This was my goal, to pick up some rare and native plants. While telling you about our adventure, I should post the plants! We were at Fuller Native and Rare Plants, in Belleville. A lovely nursery.
Here is the reason for the trip:

We have never been to this nursery, though have read about it, so we will be making a trip there in a few days time. Hope your plants do well.

It looks like a well looked after nursery.

It's good to support an independent nursery. I really like their website, too!

You have to stop and look at the plants for sale in the spring. Nice new header photo.
