I am a WINNER!!!

I NEVER win.  I won though!  WON I tell you.  Mother's Day I went to my new favorite nursery, Bonnie's Nursery in Springfield Ohio. 

First of all, they are just so stinking nice there.  I mean it.  Friendly.  Helpful.  Kind.  Resourceful.  And down right nice!!!

Secondly, they have a great selection of flowers, shrubs, sun and shade loving, just a great selection of plants.  And you know as a gardener, a good selection is important. 

So anyway, Mother's Day weekend I went in and got my planter flowers and the walkway flowers and for every 50 bucks you spend you got to enter into a $150 drawing!  So I entered.  And a week later I got this most amazing phone call saying MY name was drawn.  I am the WINNER!  I WON!!!  I almost tinkled in my panties with shock and excitement!!! 

Me and our new tree!!

I went this weekend with Vandy to pick out the beautiful whatever I want for 150 bucks and came home with a TREE!  And a couple plants, but the tree is so exciting for us because we have two soft maples that have seen their better days and are coming down this summer.  And it is one of those hard maples that is green in the summer and change to the most amazing shades of red.  The word "sunset" is in its name, so you know it won both our hearts.
My seed geraniums and dusty miller for the front walkway.

I am just so happy with my plants this year and of course our new tree.  And I want to do a big shout out to Bonnie's Nursery for picking me as their Mother's Day winner and having such a great nursery!!!
