A few days ago, I posted about how much I loved lavender and wanted to get a plant of my own.
After striking out at the first garden store I visited, I hit the jackpot at Home Depot.
They had two varieties, “Munstead” and “English Lavender.” I got both (on sale! Hooray for the July clearance on plants!), plus some peppermint.
MGM and Trixie were with me, and they each got to pick out a flowering plant.
New plants meant we needed a few extra pots, since we’re woefully short on gardening supplies at Fancy Pants Ranch.
We eventually got them situated and placed them near the front door of our house.
The new plants made the doormat seem kind of dingy, so the next day I got this one at Target:
(My toes strategically placed for artistic effect).
Seriously, this was only $12.99 and made a big impact! Note to self: buy a new doormat more often, like before the old one disintegrates.
I also went back to Garden Store #1 and got one more big glazed pot for the yellow flowers that MGM selected.
Here’s the end result:
