I am a sucker for old books, so I just had to bring these home. Most are from the late 1800's, although one is dated 1916. I cannot wait for winter to read them! And most were only $1.00 apiece... thank goodness there are no shopping carts at flea markets and that you have to carry all things back to your car! And the two little plates are just the thing for holding goodies at teatime... another find at 50 cents. The enamel bucket is perfect for picking raspberries, and then beautiful enamel cup will hang out by the faucet in the back garden to hold a cool drink from the well. One woman's trash becomes anothers's treasures! Well, on we headed to Keene, which was pretty downtown, but I'm not much of a shopper, so we turned back onto the Monadnock Highway and headed towards Gilsum via Surry Road, turning right at Shaw's Corners, which was recommended byCindy of Dhabi's Daylilies. The road meandered along the Ashuelot River... it made for a very pretty ride and would be quite a scenic trip come autumn! We arrived at Dhabi's about one o'clock, and it was quite warm out.There are so many pretty varieties of daylilies here. My camera was being a bit naughty, so I apologize for the photographs, which do not serve justice to the pretty setting and all the lovely blooms!
Not only do they carry daylilies, but also a variety of perennials and herbs. I came home with some beautiful daylilies, a lovely Anise Hyssop and a Mint that was very intriguing, and a gift of a Clary Sage! (Thank you again, Cindy!)
You can see this massive planting of hosta, and her Echinacea is gorgeous!
Just beautiful... both white and purple varieties! Well, after several walks around the rows, I made my selections, and mom and I took a seat as our generous hostess went to work and dug up the chosen plants. (Yes, I DID feel guilty not helping!)
