Out of control gardener

This morning I visited my local Home Depot; I was looking for a bag of eco friendly snail food. That was the only reason I went to the store.

I walked away with 40 dollars worth of plants; thank god my wife wasn’t home.
I got two cannas (I been looking for this type for a long time), two rudbeckias, (why, I don’t know they don’t do well in my climate, but I am a sucker for happy flowers) I also purchased a few Mexican heather, vincas, and dahlberg daisies for containers and borders. I came home and got to work fast trying to finish before the wife returned from the grocery store.
Why am I feeling guilty? I am having a birthday on Monday and I should be allow, right???

Hope you have a great birthday. That;s quite lot of plants for $40 (at least compared to where I live) and I agree, the rudbeckia are so bright and cheerful.I had such a great "eco friendly" snail removal experience. When my husband and i traveled for a week in february we boarded the dogs. The feral chickens then had a free roam in the yard, and when we returned all the snails were cleaned up!
