A Good Deal!

This last week I decided that I wanted to get my g-ma a little flower because she has been so sick & in the hospital, etc. I pass a greenhouse on my way to work (I actually worked there a couple of summers during college) & they had pansies advertised for sale on their big sign so Wednesday afternoon I went to pick one up for her. I also thought that I should get one for my Aunt Margaret because she had suffered through a stoke the previous weekend. I went in & found a multitude of colors to choose from - just like this picture. So beautiful! I found a deep purple one & decided that I had to get it for my mom because purple is her most favorite color. That's three pansies that I needed to get. If you bought 4 you got a price break - fabulous! My sister was sick this week with a really bad cold & sore throat - she should have a pansy, too! I hauled my 4 pots up to the cashier & she told me that if you bought 4, you got one free. Yippee! So I went & picked out another one. Not sure yet what I will do with it; hopefully no one else will get sick. I also got an additional discount because my dad is a landscaper & he has an account with this greenhouse. Fun! I love shopping trips that work out like that!

Anyone else scored any fun deals lately?

We must have been at northland at the same time. What years were you there? I saw your link on Erin and Bekah's Blog.
Your flowers are beautiful. I love spring. It's so beautiful, when the flowers start to peak through.
Hope your sick family members feel better, and enjoy your touch of spring.
