As in the name of my newest Peony.
It is amazing how new mulch can really add to the curb appeal around your home. Makes the back aching work very worth while when you step back and survey the work you have done. It also makes your plants stand out.
My daughter and I have been taking in a lot of Flea Markets and Yard Sales lately. We spent Saturday on the National Trail Route #40 Yard Sales hitting as many as we could get to.
At one of our travels last weekend I picked, or swooped up this Hypertufa trough at the local Hocking County Historical Society Yard Sale.
When I asked how much they wanted for it and they said a dollar On which I asked, “did you say one dollar”? Yes, a dollar!!!
Well we gardeners know how much they cost to buy or make so I was so excited. Celebration time !!
Believe me I would have run over people, shouting “make way” getting back to it to grab it up. LOL! Not really, but it did not take me long to hurry back and grab it. I was so excited and felt like I was cheating them because it was so cheap so I gave them more for it as a donation.
It is now planted with Hens & Chicks and a pretty “Pink Passion” mix of Portulaca. When it fills in I think it will be lovely.
At another stop at a yard sale I picked up these old light scones for 25 cents. Celebrate!!
I brought them home and set them on top of my cheap one dollar solar lights purchased from the local Dollar Tree Store to give them a pretty glow when they light up. I confess I saw this tip on Pinterest and I like how they look in my Shade Garden along the walkway.
