Thirty Days of Thanksgiving-Day 3, Roadside Finds

Yes, I am thankful for a few roadside finds!
I spotted these on the way home from picking up my car.

To the untrained eye, this might look like a pile of dead plants that have been pulled up, but you see, I know better. These flowers will provide many more blooms in the seasons to come, and I have the perfect empty flower bed for them. I purchased some similar mums a little earlier in the season to give as a gift, and the cost was around $10.00. At 10.00 a pot, this is $100 worth of plants. Even at 5.00 a plant, that's $50.00. Do you see what I mean. I am so thankful for the little things that put a smile on my face.
What little things put a smile on your face?

Great find.. no wonder you are thankful! My little grandson saying "Gwan", hearing my granddaughters' voices on the phone,
a hot cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer, sweet and thoughtful comments on my blog! :-)
And,no, you aren't the only one having trouble loading pictures. I had to try 4 times last night before it worked. Having time to be persistent is the key! ha! ha!
