the sniff test

If I get a spare second today I will not be putting the new plants I bought yesterday into the ground; we're getting thunderstorms and I am (are you sitting down?) excited to write in any spare moment that might come my way.

However I did make a few discoveries about plant shopping that I'm sure any real gardener already knows:
It's important to check different nurseries because
Impatiens are everywhere, but less-usual plants vary in supply.
Especially if you are filling a lot of space, check prices since
Some plants are a lot cheaper than others but
Make sure you sniff a new plant before you commit! or
You may greet passers-by with mothball-scented flowers
Like I will be doing.

(and now you know why I write prose, not poetry.)
