Part 19 Winter Trip - Debi's Day

Today was my kind of day... a visit to a yarn shop, a quilt shop and bead shop.... and a pie shop!

We decided that today we would go explore the town of Fredericksburg.  On the way there we stopped off at the Wildseeds Farms to pick up some wildflower seeds for a friend.   Not only do they sell wildflower seeds all areas of the country, they sell pots of all sizes and colors and even have a gift shop.  Unfortunately we were here too early to see the many kinds of flowers they grow for seed harvest in their 200 acres of gardens.

They were just starting to put out plants for sale.  It was incredibly difficult but I refrained from buying any plants...

They had several really nice water gardens.  In another month this place will really start to be beautiful as the first flowers start blooming.  Fiddle sticks that we will have to be heading home before then....

They also have a small sandwich shop and a wine tasting room for Texas wines.

If you are in this area, be sure to stop and check out this store.  By the way, I have ordered lots of seeds from them in the past.  Their germination rate is outstanding. 

The next stop was Stonehill Spinning, Ltd.  This small shop had some gorgeous yarn and fibers.  Staying true to form, of course I bought some yarn!

While Juanette and I were in the yarn shop, Bill went on line on the Iphone and discovered a quilting shop in town.  That was our next stop.  Juanette and I both discovered that we must really be into our knitting as neither of us found any fabric that we felt we needed.  Strange!

Our next stop was a small beading shop in downtown Fredericksburg.  While it was a great little shop... and I bought some beads... the surprise of this stop was Big Daddy, the pet rooster who roams the shop!  While we were there he was in the hallway talking to his best friend in the mirror.  

No good trip is complete without a food stop so we paid a visit to the Fredericksburg Pie Company.  They served tasty... but expensive... pie.

All in all, another great day.

We even wore out Pardner, Don's dog.
