Made the "mistake" of going to Lowe's yesterday.
One should studiously avoid Lowe's (at all costs--especially your pocketbook's) lest you find yourself mesmerized by the sheer bounty for the home owner and then find yourself commited to laying your own tile, replacing a tub AND toilet while sheetrocking and wallpapering the walls--with painted accents, of course.
Lowe's has the uncanny ability to give the home owner a "can do" mentality. "If you just buy all this cool stuff, why, the project practically does itself; it's so simple!"
Lowe's is at it's most dangerous in the spring when they have on hand every plant God ever created. You find yourself buying enough plants to landscape a small island then trying to keep them alive while you: A. try to figure out where to put them, B. find the time to tear out all the weeds, C. keep the plant alive for the remaining months while you alternate between A. and B.
Heed my advice, my friends, lest you too end up with pieces and parts to forgotten projects and plants who give you the stink-eye when you walk by, because you know that you are guilty of neglect.
Too bad Lowe's doesn't sell gardeners and handymen.
Then my life would be complete.
