The OFM had a though today that worked out well. We were looking through the flowers files for pictures to inspire some more “spring” art work. He suddenly realized that the local Walmart nursery usually starts having plants in stock for spring planting about now.

Sure enough when we hobbled into the nursery they had just started unloading a truckload of fresh new plants. So we made ourselves at home and took several pictures to have for reference on our computer.

To give you an idea of what we were photographing here are a few of the pictures we are putting into the reference files on our computer.

That turned out to be a really successful little adventure. We know we will have to go back about once a week for a little while as more loads of different plants come in to be stocked.

We have no idea what caused the trouble but both knees on the OFM decided to be difficult today so we did not even consider a long walk anywhere. At least the knees are doing a lot better tonight so there is hope for tomorrow.

Some good news. We were being held back on two pieces of shipping due to us a week ago. No one seemed to have any idea when they would make it here. Today the really important piece showed up in the mail here at the campground. A bit later the second item seller sent an email that it had been shipped and gave us a tracking number. The tracking number acknowledges that there is a package in existence but the USPS has no idea when it will enter their fine delivery system. Hopefully it will make it here soon.

In the meantime we will be out doing our best at trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Using those pictures as a reference will make your sketches pop while you are having tooooo much fun.
    Be safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. First the feet and now the knees. Where will it all end? 😉 Take it easy BFM.

  3. Walmart flower pictures--now that's creative thinking!

  4. I like the succulent with the pink edge.

  5. Hope your weather doesn't get tooo cold. It will here, as far as I am concerned, and the north wind started its assault this afternoon. Nice flower photos, and what a good idea for reference photos!
    Best wishes for the knees. Maybe a 2 advil at a time situation.

    1. Due to old injuries I take as many as 6 ibuprofen or less (advil in the expensive style) at a time as required for the last fifty years.
