My personal nursery / garden center circuit!

Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart are always a decent source for common low priced plants, particularly annuals. We did buy a number of trees from Lowes and they all have been very successful. However, I cannot resist visiting each one of these other local garden centers and nurseries to see what kids of extra special plants they have in stock. It's my Spring circuit!

In no particular order:

Now you've given me a roadmap for a fun day trip (or bankruptcy LOL). Time to hit the garden centers...
