I had to go to the pricey nursery on Saturday, because they are pretty good at identifying plant and tree problems. Anyway... even though I never ever RARELY buy any plants at that nursery, I always like to look around and get ideas. Well.... for the first time EVER, they were having 50% off on all annuals. I really didn't want any annuals, especially at this time of year, BUT... they had a bunch of really nice succulent plants out on the sales tables! EUREKA! clap grin
I collect succulents, and grow them indoors during winter.

I also found some ornamental grass out there, that had tags that said hardy to zone 5, and I'm in zone 6 and am growing some already - PERFECT for around the pond!!! Oh, and some variegated sedum that the young girl kept insisting isn't hardy here - ok, then why have I been growing that exact plant here for about 5 years or so now without losing it? Got 4 of those babies to plant on the hill of the waterfall of the pond! thumbup

The icing on the cake?
Don had bought a lot of expensive pond equipment there, and joined their buyer's club - we get another 10% off on all purchases, so I actually got them for 60% off! shots
And a free hat for Don! Bonus!

Thanks all!

Don had to go to the nursery yesterday to get some special tape for the pond,
so of course I just HAD to tag along!!! lol clap thumbup

I managed to buy 9 more plants at 1/2 off! Three are hanging alternantheras - I had never heard of nor seen these before, and 1 upright alternanthera. Some more succulents, which I posted up in the cacti and succulent forum, and a couple more variegated creeping sedum for the hill of the waterfall by the pond.
