With the horrid extremes of a
few weeks ago now past, we have settled into a wonderful summer weather
pattern. Yeah, it’s still hot, but you expect that. Having adequate rainfall
certainly makes gardening life a much easier task. The lawns around the area
are lush. Crepe myrtle are starting to flower, southern magnolias are putting
on a show. Summer evenings on the porch with a glass of iced tea. This is what
life in the mid-south is all about.
There is nothing more relaxing than dusk after working in the yard. Those all-too-quickly-passing moments are the time of quiet reflection of the day’s tasks completed. With the euphoria of spring now gone, we all enjoy the groove of the long days of summer. These long days really change the opportunity we have for outdoor projects. This is the second season for planting.
Perhaps with all that is growing around you, there are still a couple of things you meant to get around to; maybe the days were just too short. While the sun still shines at length, use this opportunity to finish a landscape area that just needs a little touch, or perhaps a bold statement. This weekend at Bates we are having a Buy One, Get One Free sale on our entire selection. I have a Buy One, Get One Free banner we are putting up. It has some fine print on it that says “on selected items”. What it should say is “on the items you select”.
Buy any item; get the second item of equal or lesser value for FREE! It does not have to be the same item. Any item. We all love sales, we all hate restrictions. There are no coupons to bring in, no rebate to send off (I despise mail-in rebates). Pick anything your heart desires, (or your landscape requires) and get anything else of equal or lesser value, FREE. This offer is only for BatesRewards members. And only those (like you) who have given us their email address. If you have friends who are interested, pass this along to them, all they have to do is come out to see us this weekend and sign-up (remind them that is free also).
This Buy One, Get One Free offer is good this weekend only Saturday July 11th and Sunday July 12th, 2009. Each BatesRewards household is eligible for one free item only. You decide what the item will be. Special Orders, Gift Cards and delivery are excluded, but nothing else is.
Our summer hours are Monday through Saturday from 8am to 4:30pm, Sundays from Noon to 4pm.
We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
p.s. By the way, the blueberries are full of fruit, ask us for a cup (that is, an empty cup), and pick yourself some to take home! One cup of berries per person please, while ripe fruit is available! (You might want to wear shoes you don’t mind getting a bit muddy.)
