What a super gardening day-and I wasn't even in the garden! I started out at Helene's house (the President of the Clarksville Garden Club) in Sango discussing gardening clubs. As I was leaving her house what should I spot but this old clawfoot bathtub! Those of you who travel Old Sango Road will surely recognize this garden. It certainly made me smile and ties in with my bathtub fish pond-sure wish mine was a clawfoot like this one. The nice owner (Larry) sure was proud of it. He acquired the bathtub from a neighbor who used it as a water trough for horses. At first it didn't have the clawfeet on it but when he dragged it out of its position from behind his truck-he found all four feet! It is a huge heavy tub. Larry added the irises and shower spigot. His plan is to cascade tinsel from the shower spout in order to simulate falling water. What a super idea! I think all neighbors must smile when they see this tub proudly displayed in Larry's front yard. I will by again in the spring to look at the lovely display of irises.
I next went to Lowes thinking it just might be sale time-and boy did I rack up! I met Linda there where she was busy buying all of the coral bells Lowes had in stock:) We talked about-what else-gardening! and friends! Then my best gardening friend Gerrianne showed up and coincidently Linda's best gardening friend Fran also showed up! Fran was looking for the coral bells Linda had already loaded into her cart:) This was so not planned but made for a very enjoyable afternoon in the garden shop. I do hope my new friends come to garden club next week!
I wanted to quickly mention about posting comments on blogger. Stacey and Sandy have already covered posting instructions on their blogs so I will not repeat it here, but my mother mentioned something readers may not know. She had been trying to comment on my postings but blogger told her she needed a Google email account. When my mother went to Google to sign up she could not find a place to get email. That is because Google email is called Gmail. My mother established an account no problem. Others, like my daughter do not want to fool with yet ANOTHER email account so she only reads without commenting. That is fine.
