You Know You Have a Gardening Problem When…

March 16, 2012 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized
… you’re the first person at the garden center to buy spring flowers as they are unloading them from the trucks.  This has happened to me the last two years in a row!  The first sign of spring weather and I can’t resist a trip to the garden store.  There is a great one in walking distance from our house and since it is so beautiful outside today I decided to take the girls in the stroller and get some flowers for our balcony pots.

Well, I lucked out because had I gone yesterday there wouldn’t have been any flowers there yet.  But today there were rows of beautiful looking pansies, ranunculus, columbines, and daffodils calling my name!  Another sign I have a problem… I somehow managed to spend $90 on flowers – eeeks (I know Ross, I’ve already blown my ‘simple pleasures’ budget for the season).  To my offense, many of the flowers weren’t even priced yet so I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.  They did however give me the ‘first customer of the season’ discount. 😉

Tallying up the damage at the cash register:

Has anyone else already planted some spring flowers or have some bulbs blooming in your yard?  If so, send me a picture!

  1. This year is my first time gardening ever, and I have no idea what I'm doing. I just found out that the flowers I pulled out last fall would have come back this spring. Oops. Lots to learn but it is fun doing it! I did succeed in planting bulbs which look great in the front yard so will have to send you some pics! 🙂 And I am heading to the gardening store Sunday.
