Some like shoes, some like handbags....Kim at Southern Savvy Style loves pillows and Debbie of Debbiedoos loves Roosters. Can you guess what I love?
Plants and flowers of course!
Last Thursday I went to Lowe's to see if they had any broccoli plants. I had planted a bunch of broccoli seeds and they sprouted, but something chewed on most of them. That was my excuse, anyway... (This was my 2nd trip to a Lowe's in two days)
The Lowe's I stopped at had several rows of veggies and herbs. Look at all of them!
Had to look at all the other aisles while I was there. The ferns were so pretty... 4 of them already came home with me the day before.
There were so many gorgeous flowers everywhere, but I held back and only purchased a 6 pack of broccoli.
Until I saw these! I couldn't resist buying five of strawberry plants.
Hmmm, I wonder where I could put a few of these...
Guess I didn't get enough of the green stuff ~had to stop by my local greenhouse on the way home (5 miles out of the way).
I could walk around this place for hours looking at everything. Sigh...
King's Greenhouse always has some spectacular items. Maidenhair fern is so beautiful ... (already have some growing in my garden next to our basement patio.
Couldn't take my eyes off these mini Cypress trees. They are even more beautiful in person. Couldn't bring myself to get one because they were a little pricey for me at $19.99 and were only 18" tall.
I think I was drooling at this point...
The purple cabbage caught my eye and I couldn't resist because they were so beautiful. I don't even like to eat purple cabbage, but thought they would look pretty in the garden.
Between my two stops, here's a little of what came home with me...Two tomato plants, broccoli, strawberries...
...and of course, purple cabbage. Isn't it gorgeous?
Saturday Mr. Fanatic and I went to Home Depot because they were having a special Spring Black Friday sale and we came home with a big flat cart full of plants and flowers...think I should stay away from the garden section and nurseries for awhile.
The weather has been so nice that I've been spending much of the time outside in the garden. It's probably a good thing it's going to rain for a few days later on in the week because there's a few things that need catching up on in the house!
How about you? Do you have something you love and can't resist buying?
