    I hit a great sale today. Nursery was closing, and getting rid of all their plants. My mom knows the owners and they said I could pick up all the plants I wanted in a certain area for $1 each. The rest of the plants, trees, flowers were 50% off, but still to spendy for my budget, so I headed straight to the dollar stuff.

    Everything was in 1 gallon pots, so they were good size plants, I got...
    Astilbe
    aster
    Forsythia Broxensis
    Anthony waterer spirea
    Self Heal
    Phlox paniculata
    false spirea
    yarrow
    prof. Kippenburg
    tickseed
    Euphoria cushion spurge
    spirea burmalda
    Chandler blueberry (4 ft. tall with blueberries on it)
    Rubel blueberry ( has berries too!)

    I got three of each for $42. We have only lived on our property for 2 years, so I have lots and lots of room to fill. I can't wait to start planting!!
    Today was the last day they were selling, or I would be tempted to go back tomorrow and get some other things, lol.

    Cool Miz Mary,, I'll have to stop in there when I go grocery shopping. I also heard that Walmart in Longview has all their plants marked down to $2.00. I don't know if that is all there plants, or just their annuals. Not that good of deal if it's annuals, lol.

    I got to get going on planting, because the weather is suppose to be getting hot!
