Today Wilhelm and I went to Stanek’s Nursery to get some pots to put on the railing of the front porch.
The pots, of course, were only the beginning. We also needed plants to put in the pots, little trays to put under the pots, rocks to put in the bottom of the pots, potting soil to put into the pots along with the rocks and the plants, plant food to feed the plants, and a watering can in which to mix the plant food to feed the plants.
$150 later we got home with our geraniums and their accoutrements and they are now assembled and sitting atop the railing in the afternoon sun, doing us proud.
