Yard sale hosta's.
Imagine my delight to find a yard sale that was selling garden plants.
Actually, a sweet lady in my ward was having a fund raising yard sale to
help raise funds for a granddaughter's trip to Europe.
She had previously given me a lot of plants when she divided her gardens about a month ago.
She had plenty more divisions, and told me that I didn't have to buy any at the yard sale, and she would be happy to give me some more plants.
Still, I was more than happy to make a contribution to her granddaughter's fund.
She only wanted .50 cents for the hosta's, and .25 cents for the lilies, and .10 cents for some of the other plants she had.
At the local nurserys you can pay $10.00 for a single hosta.
pip-berry heart shaped wreath for just $2.00.
I'm not certain exactly where I'll display it permanently .
old zinc lid 'Ball' canning jar... a mere .50 cents.
shaker box. It's huge... 16 inches in diameter.
Not a huge fan of the previous owners stamped lid.
I'll be making a change to that for certain, and more than likely, the entire box will be painted white, and distressed.
wonderful surprise this morning as I stepped out the sun room door to water the flower pots... a sweet little butterfly.
A day filled with treasures.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful to be able to drive well and not make everyone else on the road crazy.
Sorry E. .. but maybe it's getting time to put the drivers license away and let J. drive you.
I'd be sick if you wrecked or caused a wreck.
~I'm grateful that I have a love of thrifting, and making the most of every dollar.
~I'm so, so grateful to be getting such a bounty of gorgeous landscaping plants at a fraction of the cost of buying them at the nursery.
One day, I hope to have enough plant divisions to share with others also.
