I took a quick little trip to Home Depot the other day to see if they had and small pines. Of course, they didn’t have any. Lowe’s had them, but Home Depot didn’t…like many things.
On the way in, I passed by a bunch of popular Autumn plants, like Mums. Have you noticed that Mums are everywhere right now. As far as I understand, Mums are annuals. I don’t deal with annuals. I think they are a little short term for me. I do like the way they look and there really are some cool ones, but as far as buying them, I don’t.
At the old house, we had some funky plant that I forget the name of. I remember that it had thick, soft leaves…the kind you could squeeze. Well, when I was walking into Home Depot, I noticed a similar plant that had those same kind of thick leaves. I decided to pick up two of them.
The plant is called the “Neon Showy Stonecrop.” I am pretty sure this is not what we used to have. We should have pulled that sucker out of the ground when we moved, but it was too early in the season and we couldn’t find it.
When I was getting into my car, a lady in the parking lot told me that deer don’t like these plants, which is an extra bonus.
