I always have a reason to buy something garden related. Even at the grocery store I can find an excuse to buy something to plant. I find that I frequently decide where to buy groceries based on where I think there will be some plants, seeds or flowers to buy. Often I bypass the neighborhood grocery store and drive to the next town over because there is grocery store there with a good selection of annuals and perennials. If I need a few groceries and it's a sunny day, why not kill 2 birds with one stone? Grocery shopping not being a favorite chore of mine, needs to have some sort of pleasure in it.
Here are some primroses that we picked out yesterday. I just needed a few things, but those flowers caught my eye on the way in.
I think it's displayed the same way they put candy and sugar cereal at children's eye level. Only, I don't have to beg anyone to buy it for me! So, home they came with us. I know this is just the beginning of the season of making out of the way grocery stops to pick up eggs and a flower or two. Any excuse to go where there are plants.
Maybe the nursery's could start having a cooler by the check stands with milk, eggs and juice. That would make it so much more convenient for gardeners!
