Whatcha Working on Wednesday & More

Good morning, :)

Sorry I have been gone for so long. I know some of you can relate; it's that time of year to be working in your yards and gardens.

I got a few pics to show you today. :)

First, I am working on getting all these plants in the ground today before it starts to rain.

Over the weekend I went to a few yard sales in the neighborhood. I always stop at the ones that state they have perennials for sale. Its a good way to add a few new things and save a few dollars. :)
The plants in this pic came from the sale at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in New Concord, Oh.

There is ground cover, double poppies, 2 different grasses, a pink hollyhock, and a blue corn flower.
My cost? less than $5.00 for all!!!!

These plants are a combination of Kmart and Walmart. check Walmart for the garden clearance. I got the two grasses for $1.25 each, and the geraniums for 62 cents each.

The impatiens and bacopa are from Kmart.

This bed is cleaned out and waiting for some new goodies. :)

scroll on down to the next post for more new pics!


  1. Those are some great deals! I'm just learning about plants and hope to be able to find some good "freebies" along the way to getting my yard in shape. :) I never thought to check yard sales.

  2. I had to chuckle at your first picture. Look at it again and look at the white bags. When your post first came up, it looked like a doll or dog or something with a nose and two eyes and arms and legs. It looks like it is sitting there with its legs straight out. I am hoping you an see it too and that I am not crazy. Happy Wednesday! I came over from Leslie's.

  3. I clicked on your picture and realize now it is three bags that combine to make it look like a doll or dog or something. Too funny. Like I said before, I hope I am not the crazy one.

  4. You always find the best bargains...
    and everything looks so lush and green there. I can't wait to see it in a month! Take care ~Natalie

  5. You find the best deals - I am jealous! I never thought to look at yard sales for perennials, but I will from now on!
