|Double Whammy Perennial Sunflower|
I gladly volunteer to shop at our local Mom and Pop store, Walmart, which began a few miles away and has done well ever since.
My first stop is the gardening department to see which plants are being sold. They rapidly change the selection due to weather changing and plants conking out in the heat and sunshine.
I also get birdseed when I am running low. I enjoy having finch food in the main feeder, where all the small birds gather and feed during the day.
|Lantana and butterfly|
Last time I bought a very large hanging Lantana plant for $4 and no one knew what it was. Today I finally planted it in the Jackson Bird Spa area. That section has most of the butterfly and hummingbird plants -
- Butterfly Bush
- Bee Balm
- Chaste Tree
- Scarlet Runner Bean
|Sassy waits in the driver's seat when I go inside,|
but she stays home during the inferno season.
| New Bee Balm is being sold at Walmart now,|
but I got them at bargain prices earlier,
because the collection was getting beat up in the sun.
