RE: Plant shopping

That happens to me all the time. Why is that? It's gotten so bad that before
I shop I make a list of what I want and where I'm going to put it. Then when
I'm plant shopping if I buy anything else I write on the paper where I think
it ought to go. But then when I go to look I think, no, it would really go
better someplace else. Then it sits waiting for me to make up my mind.

Man you got some digging to do... hope the weather holds out for you!

Have you decided where to plant them all at yet? Seems when I am at the
nursery, I can think of the perfect spot for them, but then I get home and
they sit waiting for me to decide where to plant them! <lol>
