I picked up my grand daughter about 1pm today, because she wanted to get a couple tank tops and sandals for summer. I had already explained to her, they were in the stores now.....not in June. In June they will be all gone and the winter clothes will be out. She liked the couple of tank tops and the beige sandals I'd bought at Wal Mart so we headed out to the one in Puyallup. She did get two tanks and the same sandals as mine and came in under the dollar limit set by her mom & dad. So she was a happy shopper.
After we left Wal Mart, I wanted to drive down farther into the Puyallup Valley to the Van Lierop bulb farm and see what was blooming. There was just a little color of tulips here and there, it's still a little early for them but there were daffodils and heather blooming everywhere. I've included some pictures. I bought a pot of 5 tulips about to bloom for $4.00 and 5 bunches of cut daffodils for $10.00. I gave some to Meghanne to take home and have the rest here in a vase in my living room. The pot of tulips has been transplanted into a planter on my front porch so in a few days they will be blooming and add a cheery note to anyone who stops by.
It's been sunny all day, but not as warm as it was last week. If there's sun, I can take the cold....
The gas prices are on the rise again. I saw regular unleaded at a Shell station today for $2.75 a gallon. I guess in some areas of southern California it's up over $3.00 a gallon. Since I'm not driving back & forth to work anymore my gas consumption has gone way down. Come summer, I may drive more to go down to the waterfront and little day trips here and there but that's pleasure and that's different. :)
I hope everyone had a good Wednesday....until next time, Linda
