I snapped a photo while shopping the 50% off premium annuals on Tuesday at Milmont Greenhouse in Stuarts Draft. With the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background, this Mennonite-run nursery has a beautiful view both inside the fence and beyond. It's been my first choice for plants for 16 years.
Sprinkles fell from the clouds throughout the morning before finally turning into downpours by the middle of the day.
I was looking for flowers to fill in blank spots in pots that had been planted with Milmont products in the spring.
The sale on hanging baskets and premium annuals began July 2.
