So a few days ago I bought a "faux" iron planter (meaning, it's resin and looks nice, but was only $7.50 on sale at Canadian Tire as opposed to the $50-$100 variety for real iron). I really loved it and wanted to put it out with some pretty flowers...but the flower stock isn't really there yet. So I decided to do something my Mom does quite often, put some "faux" grass in them! I will eventually get some flowers in there too, but at least it doesn't look like an empty pot sitting outside.
I went to Dollarama and bought two sprigs of their "faux" grass for $1 each. Love them!! They are going to hold their colour and stay nice and fresh all summer long! low maintenance gardening...ahhh....
While I was at the Dollarama, I found potting soil, 2/$1 which I was happy with and a really nice ceramic wind chime, $2.
Oh, and COMPLETELY off topic, but I found that Dollarama now sells OVULATION tests along with their pregnancy tests for $1.25! great deal! Not that I'm going to be using them any time soon...or ever.
