Today was my first trip to Home Depot this gardening season.
In some parts of the country the garden stores and home centers are bursting with color and flowers. Veggies are out and pansy's are smiling their pretty faces waiting for you to take them home.
Not so in Western NY! Today was a sunny and somewhat chilly day. No one is going to garden stores yet really.
BUT, I needed Peat Moss (more on that later!) and while walking around I saw two of these wonderful urns from last year! On sale! For $20!!! (Um yes, I know, I said I wasn't going to buy anything I didn't need! I can't even pretend I need these! ) I bought both, one for each side of my front door.
That said, they are made of lightweight fiberglass and are quite large (not sure if you can tell by the picture.) I have wanted 2 large black urns since we moved here but could not justify paying $50 per pot. $20 I can deal with!
And there were more deals to be had. (I didn't though!) I think they must be getting the shelves ready for new stock because all of the pots were on sale. They had some lovely ones that I truly did NOT need.
Now I can't wait to fill them (Which will be a little while.) In the mean time, I'll be visiting my favorite website for container gardens, Provenwinners.com, where they have a section devoted to telling you what exactly to put into the pot to get the look you want! (With Pictures!)
