Garden Gift Swap
It was fun to see all the different gift ideas that everyone had come up with. I ended up with a pair of gardening gloves, a ceramic flowerpot and a matching ceramic watering can. Very cute! There was also a beautiful, deep crimson, Mandevilla in a hanging pot that was simply gorgeous. I'm just not good at these type games because I can never bring myself to steal anyone's gift from them. If it were up to me the game would be rather boring. One of the gardening purchases I made several years ago that has proved itself darn near a necessity is a collapsible trash bin (tote) with handles for easy transporting. I drag that thing from one end of the yard to the other filling it with clippings and weeds. When I'm done with it, I collapse it and hang it on the wall out of the way. It's nearly time for another one. It makes my newest project extra easy - composting! It would make a rather boring gift - but I find it one of my most valuable garden tools and a great value at around $10 -12. Sure would love to know what tools other folks think they can't live without.
