Our ritual at bedtime, is to turn the TV on to QVC! WARNING: THIS IS A DANGEROUS HABIT TO FORM!! I instantly think that I absolutely MUST HAVE whatever they are showing at the time (with the exception of jewelry and clothes). I guess you could call this an addiction. This addiction has given us many THINGS, which I love, and many things, in which I don't remember. Anywho, I love it. It goes along with my dreams of being "that" little old lady. Last night, they had a whole segment on gardening from Cottage Farms. They showed plants and pretties I had never seen before, and I couldn't resist. Scott saw my eyes twinkle and knew I wanted all of it, so he told me to pick 2 things. (He is my rock, and keeps me grounded and out of LaLa Land) How was a girl to pick just 2? By reading reviews, I say! I cannot emphasis enough, when ordering things online, always, always, always, check the reviews on products. Read them thoroughly, and then decide if you still want/need it. I did this, and finally settled on 2 things. I convinced myself that one of the plants, which had the mediocre reviews, was because people didn't plant them according to their zone, or didn't follow the instructions; so I took the chance. (I couldn't pass up the awesome deal) They were 6 plants of Pink (yes, I said pink ornamental grass). Who has ever heard or seen such a thing? Not me, until last night, and well I just couldn't help myself!
In addition, I bought wave-petunias...I get these every year from a common household retailer, and so I figured why not have them sent to my front door??
Hopefully my green thumb decides to be with me this year. I cannot wait until spring (these are arriving in April)! I will post pictures once they get established!!
