.........but not for me!!! rolz

This nursery near me is HUGE!!!
I went there this morning and the place is filled with, it looks like, thousands of plants!!! All of them gorgeous, and nodding their inticing heads at me!!!
Lots of Jade plants, from small to huge!
Loads of big, ceramic pots!!
I wandered around, taking everything in for an hour and a half!

I went there for three things:
1. Small pots and saucers to plant my sprouts in.
2. Watering indicator to stick in pots.
3. A varigated Jade.

In all that vast place, did they have small pots and saucers?....NO!!

For all those beautiful potted flowers and plants did they have a watering indicator?....NO!!

Among all those Jade plants did they have at least one varigated Jade?....NO!!

I was so disappointed!! And with the beautiful flowers beckoning me to buy at least one of them, I clutched my purse tight and left......empty handed. boohoo boohoo

Definitely for little essentials that can't be broken or easily damaged use wally world. But for the water indicator I would try a lowe's or home depot. Anything that can be broken I don't trust to wal-mart. I've just had to many bad experiences with the local wal-mart. Including a themometer that didn't work grrrrrh.
