We started at the big box store, Home Depot, because if you can find what you want there, you will pay less for it than at a nursery. We did find a couple of things, and then we were off to the Puyallup Valley to Watson's GREENhouse to spend some GREEN on some more GREEN things.
Actually, greenbacks never changed hands - it's all plastic credit cards these days - and most the plants we picked out weren't all that green: there were golds and silvers, and gray and burgundy and all shades of green, and even a few blossoms.
Some of these will go into the ground and some will go into pots. Planting will be more fun that pulling out.
Watson's has so many beautiful dispalys of plants and decorator items and everything to make your patio or garden room lovely. We enjoyed just looking.
These fake plants ↓ actually look quite real. I bought a few for my kitchen window after killing many real plants in that location.
The later flowering cherry trees are blooming already. Spring is going too fast, and it isn't even official yet!
Then for dinner there was beef stew. I don't know if it was Irish stew, but it was hot and flavorful, just right for a damp, chilly evening.
I hope your St. Patrick's Day was a lucky one.
