and I am an addict.
I'm addicted to flowers!
I'm trying to be FRUGAL so when I saw an ad for a weed whacker at a special LOW LOW price I ran right over to the Hardware/Garden Center. My weed-whacker had bitten the dust last year and this was a Name Brand one with a 2 yr warranty and a 30 day guarantee. But after scrutinizing it carefully, I realized that the type of "line" it needed was not so easy to get. They carried everything for all makes and models except this one.....
Hmmm, I thought to myself that they are probably going to clearance it out in another month and then it will disappear and I will be left with a "problem". So I decided against it. (I will make sure to scour the Estate Sales for one.) This was obviously not meant to be. I walked away sad, thinking about how I would have to hand pull all those pesky weeds. With head hung low, I walked out through the Garden Center.
I felt the warm air on my face and the blood rushed to my head.
I felt like SKIPPING.
My weed whacker money was burning a hole in my pocket!
One 2.5 gallon Yellow Rose marked down to $15.50 , 2 white rose bushes at $3.00 each and 2 phlox reduced to $1.00! How could I NOT?!?
As I drove home I stopped at another Garden Center. I couldn't stop myself!
I bought teeny tiny perennials for my Fairy Garden that I want to create...for $1.00 each.
Then a couple of 4pks of annuals to fill in some spots.
Then I started to feel guilty. This wasn't just Weed Whacker money....
now I was dipping into lunch money, which made me think of food.
So I bought 2 tomato plants, a watermelon plant and a white pumpkin plant.
I'm broke. I'll be taking cheese sandwiches to work for lunch this week!
I wonder if there's such a thing as Flowers Anonymous?
