Easier Than Real Gardening!

https://www.searsbackyard.com/

I couldn't resist...it lets you grow a little virtual tree on your desktop. I thought it was really cute- my daughter loved the little birds and the sprouting flowers. And I didn't even get dirty! :lol:

Nice find, cottongin. Kept me busy when I was supposed to be working in my REAL garden, lol.

Also I see that if you keep your tree alive long enough, coupons for the sears home and garden department pop up. That was a nice little bonus, especially sice we're about to do a major backyard upgrade and saving $$$ at this point is a VERY good thing... :)

I've just been 'growing my own tree' and I'm worn out!
