Driver Brothers plant nursery in Augusta County....

The American flag waved in the breeze on a beautiful Memorial Day weekend.

The selection of herbs was excellent.

Another Valley family-owned plant nursery is Driver Brothers on Rt. 42 west of Staunton as you head toward Buffalo Gap. We stopped in there Saturday for a pickup-load of mulch and a parsley plant to complete SWAC Daughter's herb garden.

Home school graduate Jill, home from college for the summer, is again working there part-time as she has done the past four years. She hugged us both and showed us around ... they have expanded the place ... and their selection of herbs was one of the best I've seen in the area. They were healthy plants at $2.99 each. The mulch was $25 a scoop which just about filled up a regular-sized pickup bed.

Of course, I could have meandered through the greenhouses looking for more to plant ... but after our Friday trip to Milmont we already had herbs and more annuals to get into pots ... so I didn't even allow myself to be tempted. The place was hopping with customers on a beautiful spring day.

Driver Brothers ... another local business that has quality goods.
