Field Trip to Lowes

Welcome to Lowes, how may I help you?

Every year about this time, I take a trip to Lowes or Home Depot to get a huge haul for my lawn. This year, the haul didn't seem as large only because I wanted to hit Ikea before making the final decisions. After the trip, my mom and I worked on the flower bed a few hours (that counts as exercise right) and dug up old plants that just weren't attractive anymore. After seeing some beautiful Iris plants on Lisa's Blog, I was inspired (I copied) to add a few to my flower bed. We also removed a few bushes that the builder but in. IMO, they were just awful and very dated looking. I prefer a clean, fuss free and modern flower bed. (I may post pics).

Thereafter, I had to load up on allergy meds because the pollen was thick and it was a little chilly. Most of all, I didn't want to be too sick to travel or have fun for a day spree in Ikea.

Hope you guys enjoy the photos

Lovely pictures! Sounds like you have quite the green thumb :)

Did you buy the irises already grown or bulbs? Ours were from bulbs so took a few years to get to what they're at now. They're great plants though and smell awesome!
