I am thrilled!
Today a huge greenhouse near me had an awesome sale on large hardy mums.....$1
My dear husband called me from work with the news which was brought to him by a lady who works for him. He called me and told me hurry and go buy some mums! LOL
He knows how much I love to garden and how I love flowers.
I came home with 8 gorgeous mums! On Sat. , weather permitting, I hope to plant them and take a picture and share here.
I also picked up some native ferns for my dense shady bed on the north side of the house. It will be my cool summer retreat.
Gardening is one of the things I do just for ME and MY enjoyment- something I do that is not connected to being a daughter, sister, granddaughter, wife, mother, teacher, homeschooler, aunt, cousin, niece, support group leader, struggling learner coordinator, dyslexic tutor, friend.
The fact that my husband called me with the news BEFORE the green house closed AND told me to go spend money on flowers and plants really made my day and made me feel loved for just being me...not for any of the many tasks and things I do.
