Southern Frugal Friday

Knock-out Rose
Knock-out Rose

I’ve had so much fun with y’all this week. I hope you have had a good time as well. So, Frugal Friday, finds me trying to find inexpensive ways to garden. Well, yesterday, I stumbled upon the best garage sale I have ever been to. I’m not sure where the sellers got all of these plants but it was like going to a nursery right there in their yard.

I got two very nice knock-out rose bushes for next to nothing. Can you believe that? They had so many nice plants, I felt like I was at Disney World (You might have to be a gardener to get that).

This weekend is also time for the Master Gardener’s plant sale. They divide up the plants in their own yards or root them or propagate them somehow and pot them up and sell them at a local park for great prices. This is one of the ways they fund their projects all around the county. I really appreciate the work they do making this area beautiful. They have gardens in front of the police station, at some of the local parks at the fairgrounds and many more places that they volunteer their time to keep up.

By the way, I’m still taking pics of the robin that is still busily building her nest on the drainpipe near my porch. I’ll be posting some of them sometime next week.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    I remembered of a way to save money on fragrances, when your favorite scent is getting low or you get some fragrance samples for free try applying a small amount (spray or liquid) to a cotton ball and then applying it to your wrists, neck, etc and then put the cotton ball in your bra (can I say that on this blog?) and when you are through with it and still has some scent to it put in you lingerie drawer.
