LaVille and I like to take our Hyundai into the dealership in Vacaville because we take two cars and we spend the hours shopping at the numerous stores nearby. There’s the factory stores, Target, Lowes, and many, many more all within a couple miles. Well today after hitting Eddy Bauer, Lowes (several geraniums and great bougainvillea), the RH (the new Restoration Hardware—very disappointing), and Target, we came across a Dollar Tree. The one thing we found there (other than the honey roasted peanuts and the Hot Tamales) was a package of Claw Clips. Normally these would be used in your hair (not my hair), but we have found these tiny spring-loaded clips to be really useful in the garden for supporting delicate vines—like peas, clematis, passion vine, black-eyed susan, hardenbergia, honeysuckle, and morning glory. So if you are into vines like we are, I suggest you visit your local Dollar Tree and seek out a package of Claw Clips—12 for a dollar. If you find a photo of a clip below, I was able to figure out how to transfer a photo from my phone to a document. If no photo, I failed again.

P.S. Don’t forget the peanuts!
