Tipster Tuesday

The mild winter and temperatures in some areas of the country may have us thinking of spring planting soon. A visit to the home and garden centers is probably on the errands list especially on the weekends to look around and get ideas. Here's a tip to keep in mind:

If you plan to travel a lot on business, family vacations or church volunteer trips, avoid planting so many flowers and garden plants that will require lots of watering and care. Your friendly neighbor may not mind watering them while you're gone, but it might become a bit much. Don't lose money on all your efforts for a pretty front door entrance with flowers that dry out and wilt from lack of water. Keep it simple, yet beautiful!
