Who Doesn’t Love a Bargain?

Who doesn’t love a bargain?  I visited my local Lowe’s yesterday to pick up a couple of tomato cages, and as usual, left with way more then I planned to purchase.  However, this time I didn’t break the bank. I wandered past a rack full of discounted plants. Most of them looked pitiful in varying stages of withering. Most were priced at fifty cents a piece. Then my eyes spied a sign that read 10 for $1 placed above several flats of geraniums.  Well, I couldn’t pass it up. It was perfect timing too as my daughter recently moved into a new apartment, and her patio needs some sprucing up. What better way to do that then colorful geraniums! All these geraniums needed was a little TLC. After trimming off the dead stems and leaves, they looked simply marvelous. I think I paid about $7 for the two planters. And, I have plenty of potting soil at home. So, I was able to give her a lovely housewarming gift for under $20.
