I keep telling myself that we are not going to buy anything for the house until after we are moved in. I keep telling myself this every time we are in Lowes, Home Depot, and other stores that have things for gardening and house decor. Apparently I am doing a poor job convincing myself about this. Yesterday I took the house plans and modified it to use for planning where I want to put flowerbeds, plants, and trees around the house. I’ve been thinking about gardening ever since. I already know where two of my flowerbeds are going to be in front of the house. And it just so happened that we needed to run to Lowes and Home Depot today after work to pick up some cat5 cable for David to wire the house with before they begin putting up the sheet-rock next week.
Well, needless to say we toured the gardening section. I found a ton of things that I am going to have to get after we get moved in and started on gardening. However, I did pick up a couple of things. Yes, I know….my willpower was faulty today. I picked up a set of hand tools for gardening, and some bulbs for Bleeding Heart flowers.
I got a package of three bulbs of the bleeding heart plant. The box at Lowes was empty, but Home Depot came through! They are going to be so pretty in my flowerbeds!
I am really looking forward to landscaping and creating my flowerbeds at the house. My end goal is have lots of color just about all year round at the house. We’ll definitely be busy this summer!
