A rose by any other name...

might be a Rudbeckia, or a Rhubarb, or a Ground Orchid! Those are just a few of the things that I brought home from our fabulous trip to the Antique Rose Emporium just outside of San Antonio last weekend.

I thought they just had roses, but they had a wonderful selection of other plants and vegetables and herbs as well.
It was a beautiful nursery and their roses were amazing. I did come home with one rose -- Easy Living -- with a fabulous tangerine color and a lovely scent.
The nursery was also full of lovely garden art and trinkets that would make great gifts (for me, too!) I might have to make a trip back there to do some more shopping when I have more time.

I've never known a blogger to miss a plant-shopping opportunity, and this was no different. We filled the vehicles to the brim with a plethora of amazing specimens. See that really tall and amazing Rudbeckia in the middle -- she's mine!

(Don't tell anyone that mine haven't made it into the ground yet...tomorrow, I promise!)
