Expensive birds, cheap palms
Yesterday when I drove in the alley to get home I saw lots of purple. Took me a minute to realize it was a flock of indigo buntings! Then a hummer flew right up to me. THEN several goldfinches went swooping by. So I got back in the truck and went to get the poor things some food, the feeders are empty. Well, that was an expensive trip! Had to get gas, cost me a little over $50 to fill up. So on my way to get bird food, which is now in the garden center, crafty people, I noticed that they had plants for 1/2 price.
Being a part of the plant-a-holic-I-have-no-willpower-enabler bunch I loaded up the cart. I bought a canary island date palm for $16.47, a huge pygmy date palm with lots of small suckers for $33.44, a HUGE lily of the nile for So my fellow junkies, get thee to Wallyworld and buy some palms! I'm going back tonight to get one I really want and NEED!
