My friend, Alan, + I participated at this show a couple times;

here’s our booth in May 2012:

Hola, Alan!

Hola, Alan!

If you can, you must attend a 3 French Hens Market,

held monthly here in Morris, Illinois.

They’re wonderful!

Here’s the 2013 schedule:

I’ve participated in this market a couple times, too . . .

This time, I attended as a shopper only,

+ here are a few of the things I brought home:

David's  Perennial Gardening 708.516.0249

I know!!  I’d never seen a coleus standard before, either!!

Isn’t it great?

David, the shopkeeper, told me how to pinch it back

to make it fuller + bushier.

Flume Coleus

I also bought this cool, vintage electric churn:

My plans are to have G.O. repurpose it into a ceiling light fixture.

What do you think?

I think it’s calling for a huge, vintage-style

Edison light bulb!
