I bought my husband his own blue gloves =]
A few days of temperate weather again had me heading out for a moment here and there to prune a rose bush or two. It is rather funny to me knowing that this is hardly anyone else's idea of a good time, but it is really one of my favorite things to do. I love shaping and training new growth in just the direction I think it should grow. Whether it is a rose bush or a tree,I just love to prune.
pruned rose bush on the left...a thing of beautyYesterday after class I stopped by Big Lots to see if they had their spring garden supplies in. I had so much fun buying these simple garden basics for my up and coming spring fling with mother nature. I know some women are ecstatic about buying new shoes or perhaps a new bag. Not me...I have pink garden gloves and brand new pruners...it doesn't get much better than this for me in the area of simple pleasures =]
This is another funny thing that happened this week. I received a watercolor pan paint in the mail that had been back ordered with my original order. This is how it was delivered to me...
What was in the BIG box...the little water color pan paint on the right =]A padded envelope would have been over the top for me. What could possibly be going through peoples heads? I would like to tell the owners of this business that they could save a bit of money by a small adjustment to their shipping methods, never mind the environment for crying out loud.
