Flagstone and FLower Fun!


I SCORED today! I “just happened” to stop at a few garage sales to kill some time before picking my daughter up at Vacation Bible School. Well, one sale “just happened” to have a big pile of flagstone…for $5…for ALL of it!! They also “just happened” to have 13 large stepping stones…$5 for all. Wahoo! My back is KILLING me…and I’m only half~way done from unloading them from my car (Which was VERY bottom heavy with the extra weight!).
After scoring big at some sales, I thought I’d mosey on over to our local hardware store, Lowes. They had a BIG area of plants marked down 75%. I got 3 clematis plants, 2 honey suckle, 2 large hydrangeas, and some other misc. plants…all for under $25!
I tell ya…sometimes I think I should be a professional shopper; now wouldn’t THAT be a dream job… (But then I’d probably end up keeping everything and be on the show “Hoarders: Buried Alive”….

Those were great bargains :o) I hope your car is all right lol I did the same once and got a bit worried when I had to go over a level crossing. I had to go really slow because it was so bumpy and I was afraid of damaging the suspention !
I hope your back is all right now aswell :o))

Hello! Flip me!! It was certainly worth your while getting up this morning, (yesterday morning?...)Lol!! Mind you, you're going to need all the sleep you can get to gather up the strength to get all your great finds laid and planted! But then again, that's another one of the fun bits of gardening! Well done!
