“Ready to Buy”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
About this time of year, when everything in the garden is dormant, I start to need to buy living things. Plants! I want plants. I want to garden, and it is so frustrating that now is not the time to be planting very much.
But, by Sunday, I just had to have something. I stopped by Home Depot and decided if they didn’t have anything to buy yet, I would stop at the grocery and get some roses. As I walked in and almost immediately spied the bare root roses, I knew I would have to get some roses. There was a large display of the Knockout roses, and I was happy to see they had some of the Blushing variety which is often hard to find around here and is my favorite. I already have two Blushing Knockouts in one of the side gardens and will plant these new ones near those two.
I also picked up a few lily bulbs which I will be planting very soon.
Last week was pretty rough for me, so having a few new plants certainly lifted my spirits.
