I like to post "my favorite thing so far today" on my facebook page. Usually it's something I saw or heard or maybe did or even ate. Sometimes I get 'likes' and 'comments' on my favorite things and once I even got a comment that someone liked my "favorite thing so far today". So I guess it's a good thing to do.
I am going to post one of my favorite things here because it is a real favorite! There is a shop around the corner (sounds like a movie title, doesn't it) that sells produce, salads, and a few groceries. In the past few weeks they have had potted mums on the sidewalk in front of the shop. I wanted potted mums for my front porch so I checked them out. Uh-uh. Too expensive. Their 8 inch pot went for $11 and the larger pot was $22. I can get the 8 inch pot for 3 bucks at the local "bag yer own" grocery store. Which is exactly what I did. I put them in the urns on my front porch and they look great, in my humble opinion.
But yesterday that shop had a couple of additions, namely a deep purple mum (the large size) in a neon lime green metal tub. I tell you, it knocked me out! I went by again today to take a picture. I wanted to wait until the mums were in full bloom but this thing is so gorgeous I was afraid somebody would buy it first. Here it is! Isn't it awesome? Wow, dude, I can hear the colors!
So this is my favorite thing so far today. What's yours?
