Playing in the dirt is clean fun....

All the plants on the shelves and on the lower part of the cart are on sale for $1. The two smaller vegetable plants are on sell 2 for $1 (tomato and red bell pepper)

....with inexpensive, on sale right now, plants from the Houston Garden Center 18th and 610 Loop. I went with my friend Barb and had a BLAST!!!! I spent a total of $4.57 and had two hours of gardening bliss. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

A big bee having some nectar and spreading the pollen.

 I also saw beautiful butterflies and honey bees flitting around the citrus trees. Oh and citrus trees are on sell as well for $17 a piece.
Just being around all the color and live plants gave me a big burst of energy. I couldn't wait to get home and put the Impatients, Marigolds and Red Bell Pepper in my garden. It took a little bit of time, because I had to dig up a few roots and add some more soil, but it was time well spent and oh, so much fun. I am still digging dirt out from under my finger nails, which I love, because it reminds me of my garden!!!!
Red Bell Pepper plant. I transplanted it to a bigger pot. I'm not sure where it needs to go in my garden.

Marigolds. Love this color. It mixes well with the pinks, purples and magentas of the other flowers.

Impatients, oh how I enjoy watching you grow.

This was a bunch of fun and made such a positive impact on my day. Who knew that playing in the dirt could be such clean fun!!!!


  1. Oh I know , I'm always saying don't look at my nails cause I've been gardening. Playing in the dirt, always one of my most favorite pastimes, the place where I feel closest to God and closet to myself. Truely my soul never feels more at home than in the garden.
