I just love this time of year in New England! The nurseries have there stock on sale for 50% off and there are a ton of treasures out there to be found.
I stopped by my local nursery where they know me well. I was poking around at the roots on the various trees when I came upon this little gem. The lady there told me they had dropped a tree on it and she'd give it to me for 75% off. Who was I to argue?
