It would have been easy to stay home and work on projects. I didn’t “need” a single thing!! **BUT** I wanted to support my favorite “small business”: Backyard Wild in Matthews, North Carolina. I was in the store for one-and-one-half hours; I spent $167.40. Obviously, all for my backyard wildlife. ~~ I learned my Bluebirds will practically “eat out of my hand” if I provide live Mealworms. I’ve been serving dried (re-hydrated) for nine months. Had I known… my Bluebirds would have enjoyed live!! ~~ I bought several garden flags; I can’t leave the “Home Tweet Home” flag out all year. ~~ Then I succumbed to a big business store, Home Depot, where I purchased Daffodil bulbs and Nasturtium seeds. (My harvested Nasturtium seeds may not germinate so I’m ahead… by having new seeds.) ~~ Did you shop at a small business??
