Who Doesn't Love Flowers?

This week I have an opportunity to write a product review; not something I usually do. I don't write a travel or cooking blog where I am utilizing different products and have an opinion. I write a conversational blog and speak what's on my mind. But I do love flowers and have many in my garden; I talk to the plants, I arrange the colors just so, and I constantly rearrange the garden ornaments to enhance things. For Mother's Day I received a beautiful miniature house orchid from my son's family, then my husband and daughter let me pick out 2 ceramic small birdbaths for my perennial garden. One was bright red and the other a vibrant cobalt blue. Now if the weather would just cooperate and stay warm I would begin the planting phase.

This week I received a box from Proven Winners. I was like a kid on Christmas morning, just waiting for it to come. There was the box when I got home from work. I quickly dumped my work belongings on the laundry room floor and went right back out to the garage to open the box. It still amazes me that living, breathing plants can be shipped in a box with air holes and arrive safe and sound to your doorstep. My trial plant was intact and in bloom.  Now comes the big decision. Where should I plant it? Where is the perfect spot? Should I plant it in the ground? Should I plant it in a porch pot? Should I plant it in a hanging basket? Oh my! I'm starting to sound like Dr. Seuss.

I think I need to wait a few more days to make my choice, but in the mean
time my little ray of 'pink' sunshine is receiving water and occasional light.

So here is the fun part ... this little plant is a prelude to what is to come. Yes, I am anxiously awaiting another BOX. This one is special. It will have a brand new DIY Hanging Basket Kit from Proven Winners Direct. I am so excited. I can hardly wait. This minor review is the teaser to get you as excited as I am about trying out a new product.

Stayed tuned for another review and perhaps a telling photo of where this little pink beauty ended up in my garden.

I received this free product from Proven Winners Direct.
