Right. So this time of year I should not be allowed anywhere near a home improvement store unsupervised. I have spring fever bad. I want to grow things! Many things! Colorful things! And we can totally rip apart our kitchen and redo it! And our bathroom too! And hell, let’s build a trellis and new raised bed for my herb garden while we’re at it! Why not, it’s spring!
Luckily I was only unsupervised for about 2 min. while Matt was distracted by the weed’n feed – so I was only able to impulse buy these:
Uh huh. I live on a 40’x100’ lot with very few areas of full sun. And I bought two large bushes that both require full sun. Flawless.
Had I been alone I probably would have come home with many more bushes and plans to totally rip out the little bit of grass we do have in our back yard thinking only of homemade raspberry jam and fresh blueberries over ice-cream my Id running rampant through the aisles of Home Depot.
But really, homemade jam is way better than grass.
I also came home mysteriously with these:
Now, I have no business buying any perennials of any kind. I have a grandma who has many flowers for me, in-laws who gave me a ton of stuff last fall, and a coworker who is very excited about the prospect of dividing all of her plants and having someone to give them too. And only a 4’x 15’ bed to put it all in.
But they were only $10! And pretty colors! And… spring!
Obviously my reasoning is completely without flaw. It's going to be an interesting growing season!
