Today we took some time to go to Moreauville to get a load of soil to amend the beds, and Richard planted the trees and blueberry plants. The blueberry bushes have blooms and berries on them already, so we're pretty sure that we'll have a least a few berries this summer.

Of course, giving up on going to the festival means we also didn't get to the arts and crafts booths. I wanted to check it out, although we've been before.
Here's the link to the Louisiana Nursery Festival in case you're interested in seeing a few photos from past festivals. I've also dropped in a photo of the 2011 festival poster. The festival is a large one for our state and attracts visitors from all over the U.S. and even a few visitors from other countries. It definitely is worth the trip to our beautiful state.
Richard and I decided to have lunch at Lea's Lunchroom as we were driving through Lecompte. We had the delicious ham with rice and gravy, white beans, coleslaw and cornbread. A filling lunch, that's certain, but we managed to share a slice of peach pie. My favorite! Click here to visit their website: Lea's Lunchroom. If you're ever in central Louisiana around noon, make the quick drive to Lecompte for lunch, but save room for pie!
