Back to School, Happy Halloween, and Merry Christmas!

I know I haven’t updated the blog too regularly over the summer and I am not wishing everyone a Happy Halloween or Merry Christmas just yet.

Last night at Wal*Mart all three things could be found on their shelves.

There were many “Back to School” items and sales last night which are expected of course.
They also have Halloween decorations and such in full sales mode. Two months before the Holiday is a little much, but whatever.
Plus, unbelievable I know, they had many, many Christmas items on their shelves! Now that is really early! There were the Christmas villiage, decorations, lights, and other stuff.

Talk about getting a jump on the Holiday’s!

4 Less Flowers for Us!

The summer is going fast and school will be in session soon. I thought I should have at least one post for August. So here goes.

Earlier this spring, I purchased four “boxed” flowers (two clematis and two hydrangea). None of the plants grew, only one showed any signs of life and then died. I wasn’t too concerned because I had a money back guarantee from the company.

At the beginning of July, I sent the proof of purchase to the company as required for their warranty (K. Van Bourgondien) with a note explaining why I was entitled to a refund of my money or replacement plants.

A month and a half later and I have heard nothing from them. I do not recommend buying plants from this company.

Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me!

It won't happen again with that company.
