    Default I have all the will power of a bowl of jello.....

    *sigh* As some of you know, $ is very tight for me right now. So what do I do this weekend? I went to help an os set up (not sure if I'm going to 'join' yet -- still miss my old os) at a show. Well one of the perks is getting the first look at what the venders have brought in to sell before the general public even gets a chance. It's not uncommon for a vender to show up with one or 2 really choice plants. These often get snapped up by other venders or the folks who are involved in set-up. The general public never even has a chance. I had planned on being good and just looking. (& considering my lack of funds and space, that's often no as hard as it sounds. I've found I'm getting a lot pickier.) Well it was a case of "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" & being in the wrong place at the wrong time. *sigh* I came home with

    Pot Creation 'Summer Choice'. (Oh and the lip really is this dark)

    I have gone to shows with a specific amount of money in my pocket for spending and end up going through that, hitting an ATM and using 2 charge cards. Welcome to the bowl of jello

    Resistance is futile, and why should it be any other way.
    Great pick

    Vicki, it is somewhat fragrant. Definitely a floral scent. Nothing great but it doesn't reek either.
