Mid-Winter Deals

Well, it's that time of year again, when garden centers everywhere are clearing out old stock to make room for this year's crop of garden delights.


Sorry, dark cell phone photo!

Yesterday, I headed out to my favorite haunt for a little late January garden center therapy, and was elated to see racks and racks of discounted perennials.

I didn't actually need a lot (not that that's ever stopped me before), but I did find a couple of Prince Henry anemones, two Flash Lime astilbes, and some Red Veined Sorrel (which looks gorgeous in the ground, but will be absolutely delicious in my new favorite tart).

Unlike last year, I couldn't resist grabbing myself a lush looking hellebore, but in my defense, it was on sale!


I also got myself a great hammered tin planter for next to nothing (the hellebore is sitting in it). I'm going to fill it with river rocks, maybe a water plant or two, and put it at the base of the rain chain by our front door.

Gardenworks also has all of their seeds on sale for 25% off - sale ends today, for anyone within driving distance - so I'm almost ready for spring (truth be told, I've been ready for a while). Now if only the weather would cooperate!

That hellebore is gorgeous! I wish we had a garden centre here!

Oh Annie, that's terrible! Thankfully, seed catalogue therapy works almost as well. :)
