Visit: Family Greenhouse
Every visit to Rogersville wouldn't be complete without a trip to our family's greenhouse. Martins Greenhouse is run by my uncle and aunt along with other aunts and a slew of cousins. They are always super sweet when we get to see them although, I always wish more of the cousins were there when we came. I guess around the holidays many of them are off! ;) Good for them.
What is so awesome about Martins? If you have ever visited Dollywood in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and seen the beautiful plants, well here is who grows them from seedlings.
When we stopped by, we were told we just missed the huge poinsettia collection but we were excited to see all of the succulents they were growing. A trend, is what they called them at Martin's. It seems that succulents are the "it" thing right now for the younger generation in weddings. I think I have seen quite a few blogs with these beauties gracing their webpages. We were told to take what we wanted. Each of the girls, Joe and I each chose a plant. They are sitting in our sunroom now, freezing. Poor things.
