Oh No You Diten!

Sams Club is the best.

You can go in with a simple shopping list and come out with a cart full of goodies that you never intended to purchase.

I was doing the shopping cart dance early Saturday.

You know the one.

Step. Step. Squeak.
Step. Step. Squeak.

I got me some rotisserie chicken, some diet mountain, a pile of berries (tasteless of course), a big bottle of wine and a frozen bag of mixed veggies.  

Like I said.  Simple.

I was heading to the self check out when an end display stopped me cold.

Spring bulbs!
Multipacks of spring bulbs!


"Like you don't have enough going on in the garden."  The cranky old broad in me exclaimed.

But I don't have Canna Lilies or Gladiolus anywhere in my yard!" The Southern Belle in me reasoned.

I eyeballed the assortment and snapped up 2 boxes of Canna's and 1 box of Glads.

As I went through the self check out the computer squealed when I rang up the wine.  

"How old do you think I am?" I teased the older gentleman who game over to type in his code.

"Ha.  I've been caught in that trap before!  Looks like you'll be needing that wine after planting all of those."  He remarked.

It wasn't until I was packing the truck with my goodies that I realized just how many bulbs I'd bought.

24 Cannas.  That seems reasonable for my 1/2 acre square of heaven.

90 Gladiolus.  
Say WHAT?  
As in Nine-Zero?

Holy crap.

Guess what I'll be doing the rest of the month....
