I can remember my Mom saying that...
Well, as you know there seems to be no or little money in the budget for flowers this year.
I hate to say how much I normally spend.
The twins got me a hanging basket and another beautiful basket for 1515, i brought home.
Mr. also took all the ferns, geraniums and hanging geraniums to work over the winter. Thank goodness, it has saved us a bundle.
Here is something i have had for a long time.........
From the local nursery, I had them in my purses, desk drawers everywhere.
I thought...lets cash them in this year!
I added and added....I had over 750 points! yippee!
enough to fill up part of the back seat.
I was so happy, they had a Sara Bernhardt peony. I lost mine when they had to dig up our yard for the water main break.
They also had a yellow peony. I have been wanting one for a long time, but it seemed they were always expensive.
Also replacing the hollyhocks and Shasta daisy I lost too.
I am so grateful they have the program for frequent buyers!
It is to fix this mess
one poor hosta and weeds...gone is the peony and I still need to replace my Mary Rose, David Austin rose.
The area use to look like this............
It will take a few years to look like this again.
I am grateful for other things coming up unexpectedly
All my dahlia's! and they are huge, guess I am glad I did not dig them up.
I would say this is a proven winner!! It came back in a window box!
Saved me $3!
I have some marigolds and alysums that came back to.
So this is definitely a Thrifty Post!
It was all free!!
