Added To The Garden

Postby kHT » Mar 21, 2016 9:50 am

Was on Craig's List a couple weeks ago and came across a nursery selling off their
business. I exchanged some emails and told them we would be there. Here is what
we picked up for the gardens and enjoyed chatting with the owners. The largest
one will be the home to Shorty's Variegate Brugmansia and still trying to find something
for the smaller one. They are to big to move so they will sit on the south side of the
driveway until we remove the wooden deck and put in pavers.

Always nice to find some good concrete planters at bargain prices! DH wants to replant one of ours this year as a moss garden.

Tigger, we went to the cement shop yesterday as the both pots have hairline cracks to see how to fix.
We both found items we would love to have from a fountain to a med size lion in a bronze color to a huge
turtle in gold. We were surprised how mossy stuff was there, we hadn't stopped in since getting the retaining
wall blocks. Gosh I'd be out there scraping all the moss off as it breaks down the cement. I found a couple urns
that my clivia would look sharp in but the prices weren't in my ball park. These pots were free!! The owner
was glad I was going to give them a good home so Free is what she charged me. I about fainted. :eek:
They are welcome to come visit any time. We rented a trailer so that costed $60 and pizza for the kids
to help move them.

They had a great turn out for their sale and we were the first there so they were glad I got the pots.
