A few days ago, one of our freelancers at work discovered that I was into plants. We then started taking about a Begonia he had and flipped through a Loggee’s catalog to see if we can find it. Well, we didn’t… Yesterday, he brought in a cutting of the Begonia for me. I potted it up once I got home.

As I returning my library books to the library, I noticed that they were have a huge book sale. I got 5 books and 6 magazines for $2.00. That’s 50¢ per inch thickness and these added up to about 4 inches. GOOD DEAL!!!
I then drove to the Sonoma Orchid Society Orchid Show and Sale 2007. See previous entry for more detail.
After the Orchid show, I went to hang out with my friends Bill and Howard and watch the Chinese New Years Parade (on TV). Howard want to plant his succulents in a bigger pot so I passed by Home Depot to get some Cactus soil and Perlite for him.
I swear, it seems like they are either careless in shelving their plants or accidentally bump into it with a forklift, because they have dirt and plant pieces on the ground. I know they are just going to sweep it up and throw it in the garbage, so I rescued the three succulents.
Howard also gave be some pieces of the succulents he potted up.

I rested and did laundry most of the day, but later in the afternoon, I took my Mom out to go shopping.
We also stopped by Michael’s because they had a sale on small Terra Cotta Pots. They were 3 pots/$1.00 so I bought 24 total. Just in time for me to plants all those Succulents I bought from the Orchid show.
Looking back at this entry… I did a lot of shopping… but they were all good deals!!!… and for gardening!!!
