Good Shopping Day!

It's sad when a nursery is going out of business, but very happy that they mark everything down to at least 50% off.....

So today i got a new fairy rose (unmarked, but white and red bicolor blooms), a HUGE (think 2 1/2 feet across) pot of shasta daisies, and two big hanging baskets for about under $50 bucks...

Then my friend Bobbi, who's going through an "I'm through with roses" phase in her gardening development, gifted me with a 7 foot tall Don Juan climbing rose. Which necessitated a trip to Home Depot to get a big pot and a trellis for the rose. Who could resist gallon lavender for $2.97? Or lupines for $1.97? Or big blue pots of verbena?

All this means that I need to move some things in the yard, since the rose isn't going to fit where I thought it would, but that's okay, I wanted to move some stuff over there anyway. A garden is never done, it's always a work in progress.

And the going-out-of business nursery had some fun earrings too, also at half price. Woo hoo!

And tonight, we're seeing They Might Be Giants.

It's a good day.

It's   Ranniger's Kent Nursery (253) 854-1767

I don't know exactly where it's at, since Bobbi drove, but I want to say 248th SE? I may be totally out of whack though.
Somewhere up on Kent's East Hill.

They don't have tons left, roses, dahlias, coreposis, quite a few hanging baskets.

There's also another nursery directly across the street.

Re: Swoon....
He's still really unhappy, but starting to green up a little.
I think it'll be next year before I get any more blossoms, though....But next year, he'll be spectacular.
