If there is one thing that stands out as a warm weather 'perk' -
it is roadside markets. I love these little outdoor 'shops' that grace
front yards and the end of farm lanes.
Often they are a bargain hunter's paradise for produce and plants.
Several years ago - this little stand popped up a few miles down our road.
I never got around to stopping till this week of this year.
This sign caught my eye.
A 4-pack of begonias for just $1? Yes please!
At home I happily filled in some barren areas...
...along my front walk.
And I filled an old bucket which leaks.
The iron hangers were a freebie from a neighbor years ago.
So several thrifty tips today...
1. Visit roadside markets - there may be a bargain (or 2 or 3...)
2. Leaky buckets (and pans and canners, etc) make great planters
3. Welcome cast offs from others - and find a use for them.
How I love Thrifty Thursdays.
And I'm loving that the sun is out again. It does a spirit good!
