Today I want to tell you my dirty, little secret. Have you ever heard of a five finger discount? Well, I use it almost everyday. It’s true, I do! Plants can be pretty pricey and this green thumb gal is not opposed to stealing some blooms…from Mother Nature, that is. There are so many free blooms out there, you just have to keep an eye out for them. Keep your clippers with you everywhere you go and you will be amazed by all the free greenery you can find in a single day.

Needless to say, today’s container garden is brought to you by the beautiful blooms in my neighbor’s yard. The gorgeous jewel tone blooms are saucer magnolias and the white blooms are bradford pears.

    Your so funny, I keep my clippers in the car too. I’m glad to know you’re scarfing free blooms and greenery! I even cut down some tall bamboo growing on the side of the road. I needed to make something for my climbers.
