Found 'em!

So on Saturday I finally found those trilliums I've been searching the woods for...
only they were $40.00 each at the local garden shop. I had trouble deciding if I wanted one dozen of each or two.

;-)

Honestly, I'm glad to see them selling native plants, but $40 for something Luka would probably lift his leg on? Pfft! I'd rather keep searching for them in the woods.

Try eBay! http://tinyurl.com/49koq5 I have successfully bought plants from eBay -- better prices than the local guy! Wow -- $40. That's a lot for a plant! No matter how beautiful!

$40!? Forget it! Enjoy the woodsy ones; they're free!

Yikes, $40 for trilliums is outrageous.

Well, the blistering 5mbps Intertube connection is, as usual, more like 22kbps, so I can't see your pictures. But we are buried in Trilliums. $40? No way.

$40!!!! Not even for something as pretty as that! What a nerve!

They are pretty though!

Illegal to harvest here ....

Wow--hardly seems fair to pay that price.
It almost encourages stealing them to get rich!
What a shame.

Liza: I wouldn't have ever thought of eBay for plants. Thanks for the idea.

Delia: Yeah, free is nice, if only I could find them somewhere.

Carolyn H: There was also the neatest Jack-in-the-Pulpits - $40 also.

Dr. Know: Buried in trilliums? Sounds awful.

;-)

Bobbie: Hi. Didn't recognize you there. That price is a bit much, I agree!

Rabbit's Guy: Right.

Nina: I'm not sure that anyone, even in this neighborhood, would pay that much. Those who might afford it would probably choose something garrish and typical instead.

$40 does seem like a pretty steep price. I would sneak off to the woods really early some weekend morning and dig up a couple plants--they're very plentiful here!
