Today, I stumbled across a great buy on a pink Dogwood tree. It was neglected at the back of a greenhouse, and the center of it had died, but there is plenty of good growth on the small tree. It is the variety with blooms that measure about 3 inches across ! ! ! ! I got it for $5.00 ! ! ! ! I planted it in my front "shrubbery row".
I'm always interested to read when Larry buys roses and other plants in the 'discard basket' at Walmart's plant center. I check mine regularly too, and have made quite a few good buys. A few days ago, I found an Easter Lily that was looking pretty rough, but had a nice bloom on it, and 6 more buds.
|The lower part of the stem was covered in brown leaves which I removed, and the rest of the plant is just wonderful !|
My Azalea bushes are finally getting acclimated to their new spot along my side boundary, and are blooming beautifully.........I think they reached their peak today (I caged them because of the deer BITES ~!~)
Note of record: Hubby has a touch of pneumonia again. He tends to come down with it about twice a year on average. But he's doing okay, taking a few extra meds, and staying quiet. Love that man of mine !
