Remember the TV show where a contestant was given the chance to choose and keep as many items as she could shove into a shopping cart in just one minute? That is how I felt Tuesday when I stopped in at a favorite garden center, Southern States, while my husband waited in the car.
I have grown some snapdragons from seeds for the first time, but was looking for the immediate gratification of fully blooming plants.
I took the last Erysimum on the shelf. I grew ‘Sugar Rush Red’ once before and it did well for a couple of years.
I have not planted pansies in recent years, though a few pop up in springtime from past lives. These will be bright and cheery and the white dianthus will make a nice companion.
At the end of five minutes my cart was full and I had to rush on. Sometimes you can buy a little happiness.
