Pink Saturday: More Bargain Plants

 Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Please visit her for lots of pink posts! Thank you Beverly for hosting once again!

A few days ago, my daughter and I rode to a nearby town to shop for clothes. While we were there, we decided to check out the plants on sale at Lowes. These packs of impatiens in shades of pink were only 50 cents a pack with 9 plants in each pack! I bought four of them, so I have 36 new impatient plants that I can use to fill in empty spots in my pots and flower beds. You may be wondering where the fourth pack is…read on!

When I unloaded the plants, they were on the driveway near the car. I didn’t realize til I started backing out that one of them was too close. I realized as I rolled over it, that I had run over some of the plants! Guess I’ll be more careful next time. Live and learn as they say! Amazing thing is, the ‘injured’ plants are still thriving! Tough little things aren’t they?

Oh, poor little plants! I bet they'll thrive in the ground if they can survive the driveway! Now, I've gotta get to Lowe's and see if they are still having a great sale!!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I found a plant sale at Lowe's last week also but not nearly as great as yours!! Impatiens survives my dogs so I think it can survive anything! Have a great weekend!

This is so nice... thanks for sharing. Do you really love plants? Do you have any tips about hydroponic garden/plants?

Chandy said...

That's great! My petunias are getting leggy this season and are being beaten around by the wind. I'll have to replace them again...

I guess their toughness is why so many businesses have them!

We bought a red bud tree at Lowe's 2 years ago. It was at the end of the season and it cost us 5.00. It is now one of the best things in our garden. You just never know.

One day of the week I can count on for self-indulgence, Beverly's Pink Saturday. My l♥ve for the color is fed over and over and over by the generosity of everyone who participates. This week is no exception.

Thank you for sharing such great eye-candy. It was an absolute pleasure to visit your blog. Hoping this weekend finds you surrounded by l♥ve and happiness.

Impatiens "tough" huh?.. I may just have to try my not-so-very-green thumb out on THESE then!!.. certainly for the price! Thanks! Happy Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful week!

Brenda said...

I bet your heart just skipped a beat or fell when you realized you'd run over them. Oh well, they seem to be doing fine. And at least it wasn't an animal!

Claudia said...

I always forget to check the sale table at Lowe's! Happy Pink Saturday ~ I hope you have a great weekend ~ Susan

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Great deal on the plants & I'm still giggling about you running over one... ☺ Diane

Southern Lady said...

What pretty Impatiens, Diane ... and your hostas are gorgeous. I hope the ones you ran over bounce right back .. that sounds like something I would do!

Cottage Rose said...

Hello Diane; Happy Pink Saturday..
Oh dear that sounds like something I would do... or have done... lol and they are very tough plants I must say. I just planted some today too and yes they were Pink... ha ha... have a great weekend.

Hugs;
Alaura

HiHo said...

I'm still catching up from last week...new look? Like it, HP, Heidi

jeanne said...

Hi Diane, you made me laugh at the poor little run over plants. they will survive with some plant food and water. They just might take a little longer to get going. Every year some impatiens grow back without any help from me. Yes, they are tough little things until a freeze comes along.LOL.

Enjoy your pink flowers.

Hugs...Jeanne

Dawn said...

Your impatients are nice. I never do well with impatients. I think they either get too much water or not enough! That's too bad about your little accident. I hope the plant comes back just as beautiful as the others.

take care,
Dawn
