I had another day of being on the road doing groceries. I have been working in a home care and was out busy again at my shift today getting some groceries needed. And yes, I had another trip to the 99 Cents store in La Mesa. I was about to see the flowers they have and get about three. And since I got my camera working now, I had snapped some photos while going on aisles.

At the entrance was all kinds of flowering plants, I had my empty cart and picked three flowers in a small pot. But as I got inside the store, I saw this flowers in happy colors of yellow. Aren't they pretty? So I decided to put back the other two flowers I got from the entrance and pick two of these instead.

I just love them when I saw these beauties. I think they were newly stocked as the flowers are lively with greeny leaves. I got two for my client and one for my mom to have in the patio.

Somehow I was still expecting roses, just like what I got weeks before. But this flowers are beautiful too.

And just the last weekend when dad and I decided to have a trip to the 99 Cents store in our area in National City, I had spotted bamboos. I pointed it out to him and he got most of the bamboos and only left two. This was just like finding a treasure because we got some other bamboos on other store a couple of years past and they costed us much more.

Now we have bamboos to add more trellis on our small patio. The chayote could used more of the trellis and also the bitter melon and hyacinth bean.

And of course, we used them on making indoor bamboo fountains as well.

Look at those bamboos! Some are still green!

And since I'm on the vegetable section looking for any vegetables I could get, I had spotted some blackberries! This is the first time I saw black berries on the store, probably because I just started going there, but anyway, I just can't let it pass as we can use it for smoothies so I got 4 to take home. I had picked up some frozen meals too.

And the berries? They are sweet as I tried some when I got home. I was thinking they we're sour or something. But luckily, they are sweet.


I was also asked to get some dog foods and so I did. I got a bigger one for .99 cents and the smaller one for .69 cents.

I was looking for Cracker Jack, but hadn't seen one. I went through the aisles but didn't find it, probably are out of Cracker Jack as I usually just see them on the entrance and on the snack section.

Now, if only I could find a plant hanger in there that would be really nice. But all in all, that trip went well and had saved me some bucks.

I got 4 roses and a sage.
