Planting Flowers

I went to Lowes to buy a new handrail for the garage stairs and ended up buying some annual and perennial flowers also. I almost never leave a store without buying one or two things that I was not intending to buy, which drives BYUFan crazy.


After I got home I sent the kids inside to play while I attached the new handrail and planted my flowers. It takes longer to plant nowadays because I have to move the mulch, cut the weed barrier, plant, and then put everything back so it looks good. I just hope that the weed barrier will do its job and the mulch will help keep in the moisture so it doesn’t evaporate too quickly in our hot and windy environment.

  1. Is it possible to go to the store for only one thing? You’ll have to talk to Mike about going in for one thing and coming out with a whole flowerbed. He’s trying out seedlings now because his flower habit was getting a little too expensive. Except the yard guys keep thinking they are weeds and pulling.

    When we first moved to Dallas I bought a huge case of bulbs and was so excited to plant until I started cutting into that weed barrier. That stuff is a pain! But oh so good.
