It's an addiction

Yesterday I visited my local Home Depot; I was looking for a sprinkler head to replace a broken one.  I come home with fifty dollars’ worth of plants (I need therapy)

I replace a dying pinwheel plant with a new hibiscus. 

I couldn’t help myself with this white Mexican petunia, I have pink and purple but not white.

 
How could I resist this neat begonia, on sale for $6.99?

 
More flowers blooming in the garden this week.
The heliconias are putting on a show.
 
Red Hibiscus

The end of the vegetable season, these are the last of my carrots.

Plants are definitely an addiction. I went to the local botanical gardens' spring plant sale this morning and ended up buying 12, with the money allotted. I didn't even look around any further, as I didn't want to see what I couldn't buy. :-)

Enjoy your new bloomers.

LOL, I think we all fit into that category of needing therapy. :-)

The white Mexican Petunia is "Myan White". It was bred by Dr. Freyere and it is sterile. Hope you enjoy it.

I can certainly relate to this addiction! Love the heliconias.

It's funny how any trip to the store has to lead through the garden department, "just to see what's there".

Those cactus flowers are very pretty.

Let me know if the therapy works, I went a few weeks ago for a bag of bird seed and came home with a lemon tree, lime tree, 3 rose bushes, raspberry and blackberry plants, 5 bags of mulch, soil and manure, all that was missing is a partridge in a pear tree. You garden is amazing.
