Shopping Northwind

The Northwind Perennial Farm in Burlington Wisconsin hosted it's annual Antique Show last weekend.  I participated in the show a couple of years ago; it's a lovely location. I've since decided that it's really more fun to be free to be a shopper  - I had a blast there on Friday.
It was like going to a garden party and finding all my friends there.  Diane Passi is at a show every weekend.
Michelle and her son Dylan are our fun neighbors at The Elkhorn Antique Flea Market.
 Jeanine sets up at this show every year.  This year I nabbed a suitcase from her that matches the others in my collection - hooray!
Maryann was next to Jeanine on the beautiful shaded lawn.
Out in the field I grabbed a moment to chat with Margaret, (& Janice).
This duo was busy but I got them to stand still for just a moment!
There was so much great stuff to see throughout the entire show.

After browsing the vendors, I spent a little time among the perennials for sale and came home with some beauties...
...including the honeysuckle that I just planted by this beautiful trellis that Kathy gave me.
Isn't it wonderful?  Now I need to add some colorful annuals at the base to finish it off.
If you're ever in the Lake Geneva - Burlington area, pop in to the Northwinds Perennial Farm. Just be prepared to come home with a carload of perennials. They have so many wonderful varieties.

So what did you do this weekend?  Hope it was fun, wherever you were!

I'm off now to get ready for the North Shore Flea this Wednesday evening.  This is the first one of the season - come on out!  You'll find great food and fabulous vintage vendors!
