Hubby and I went by one of the large nurseries in our area. We were looking for a plant stand or two to house all of the plants we've brought in for the winter. The nursery has so many beautiful plants; landscape plants, indoor plants, perennials, annuals, plants for ponds..... It's an adventure just to wander through their extensive indoor nursery on any not-so-nice day. It's a challenge to come out of there without having spent too much to acquire plants we do not need!
The nursery had only a few plant stands. Nothing that met our needs, but look at the bargains we found!
Perennials were 75% off. I wanted to grab them all. But I practiced restraint. Do you realize how difficult that was?! I kept reminding myself that it is so late in the season, I'm not sure any of them would winter over. What the heck, we can try a few! I've been covering them at night. It's supposed to get to 16 on Wednesday evening. I figure I'll bury them in mulch for the night... or, I could wrap them in Christmas lights!
So may I introduce you to my bargains:
This is one of my favorites.
I bought two - wish I had bought a dozen!
Here is another treasure. This was $5. As my hubby keeps saying, you can't buy a bouquet for that. This is so large, it brushes the door as we bring it inside at night! Within the next few days we will plant it, and again, hope it makes it through the winter.
