You get what you pay for.
Having good tools is important to me. Whether it's gardening tools, sewing machine, scissors, drills, or graphics programs. The quality of work (or should I say 'ease' of work) is generally far improved when good quality tools are used. The experience is more pleasurable also.
In my early years I picked up gardening tools at Walmart and such places, but then I wasn't a serious gardener either. Now they are purchased at nurseries and last many years as opposed to one or two. Here are a few shots from the yard this spring that I just happened to have a couple of my favorite tools in. The little long handled hand hoe is not being made any more, sigh. I've had it more than 10 years.
A lot of texturing going on this week.
Linking up with Tuesday Muse.

What's blooming? Well, this one sunflower plant has made quite the display against the corn. And the pumpkins are coming along nicely. They always seem to have trouble for some reason.
Hope your garden is well this year. We got a little bit of rain last night, a welcome relief. So my hair is curly today. ha!
By the way, this is my 200th post on this blog that was begun early last year as a result of signing up for Kim Klassen's Beyond class. The journey has been very cool indeed.
