75% off Perennials!


Well, I had Jessy drive me to the Lowes a day ago… to pick up my yearly supply of dead perennials! Yes, it’s that time of the year! The rangy, scraggy looking, nearly dead perennials find there way to my yard. And best of all… at 75% off.

I got 3 lovely little umbrella ferns for the cool shady spots of the kitty garden… and 3 pretty Russian blue sage plants… also planted in the kitty garden and the best find of all?


A HUGE 5 gallon blue wisteria!!! Originally marked $39 and now only $9! OH HOW COOL…..


I love wisteria. At my home, my lost home, I had planted wisteria on my big front porch and I babied that stuff for a good 3 years or so and had it up to the porch roof and starting to bloom. And then, well, things fell apart. I had to leave it, it would have been rude to uproot everything in my yard, but if I had had the energy, I might have tried, but I didn’t. So it stayed.

But now I have a new beautiful, healthy, strong plant to take it’s place. It’s got three strong branches and I hope to train it up and over the shed next year. I hope it makes it through the winter. I’m sure it will. We’ll have the grape vine sisters on the north corner and the blue wisteria on the south corner! How delightful!

If you haven’t discovered this wonderful way to get great plant material for CHEAP… make sure you dash down to your local big box hardware joint and see what is left in the back corner and marked down drastically. Last year I spent about $20 and got tons of plants… this year I only spent $14 and it will pay wonderful dividends in the spring and summer to come!

We also planted just about all of our spring bulbs… here and there, adding clumps of color to the spring time delight. We put a lot of them around our bunny rock out front. The beautiful foxtail grass did a nice display of pretty plumage and so did the peach tree. They apparently love the location, so we decided it would be nice to have a beautiful display of tulips and little purple bloomers all over the place. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! Only like 5 more months!!!
