Now is the Time,
Kerby's is the Place

September 29, 2016   

And that's how you have fun at Nana and Papa's house.

As a parent, you often wonder what your children are up to when you aren't around. This week, Kim and I are in Houston for a garden center conference and so the girls are getting a few days with Grandma and Grandpa Kerby. I think the picture at right says it all. What could be more fun than playing princess and cowboys, right? So while we are getting some inspiration for the garden center, our girls are having fun and making some great memories with Nana and Papa.

That's how you do Fall in Florida.
Just like Seffner, it's hot and humid over here in Houston. It looks like a hint of cool weather may be coming for us this weekend. And if it doesn't happen this weekend, we know it will happen soon. In the meantime, you can make your garden look like fall with beautiful Florida plants. It's a great time to live here!

Happy Gardening,
The Kerby's Nursery Family
