Bargain tulips

It's been a long time.  There have been several reasons I haven't been around but who wants to hear tales of health, or busyness, or that I've hardly taken a single picture in months (therefore, I can't blog, right?).

I went grocery shopping yesterday.  (It's shaping up to be an exciting post already, isn't it?) I do most of my shopping at our local Kroger which has undergone a major remodel over the past several months.  After all the dust and clutter, it's finally been done for a couple weeks.  

The remodeled store is really nice but I don't think they left a single thing in the same place so I spend a lot of time going back and forth, between forgotten items suddenly remembered (I stink at having a good list) and the totally new layout of the store.

Yesterday, I decided to walk back to the produce area to look for something and my path happened to go through the floral area.  Kathy always finds great deals on flowers but I never see anything like she finds.  Until yesterday.

I was sure the $1.00 price tag was a mistake until I realized that there were several of them, all marked down to $1.

Between the deer, chipmunks, and whatever other critters live around our property, most of the tulips we've planted are long gone so I'm going to enjoy having tulips again, inside where the animals can't steal share the enjoyment.  

As the snow keeps falling today, I'm going to pretend that spring is almost here.  I have the tulips to prove it!
