This election season has gotten me a little depressed.
I suspect I’m not alone in this mindset. We’ll leave it at that.
Luckily this past week’s cooler weather got me in the mood to plant. So I found a Garden Center brimming with a yard full of beautiful, neat & tidy looking plants. I happily pulled out my credit card and began dreaming of where these new acquisitions would look best.
The ground is hard here & filled with many rocks. I cleared a new area and labored for hours just digging three holes. Then I meticulously spun the plants so that perfect face would be visible from my porch. With their fresh blanket of mulch, my smile grew wide as I sat on the porch with my well earned beer enjoying the new view. It was the most satisfying moment I’d experienced in awhile. Complete & utter happiness…. from the simple process of putting some new roots in the ground.
So my takeaway is this. I had to visit several Garden Centers before I found one well stocked for fall. People NEED you this election season. Please make sure your Sales Area is filled with plants because
Plants = Happiness!
