Pearl and the Pot

Have you ever watched someone open a present and become more interested in the packaging than in the present itself? Many times, Abby and Maddy have set a new toy or coloring book aside so they could thoroughly examine the box that contained them. We see packaging. They see a leprechaun trap, a fort, or a spaceship.

This phenomenon is not limited to people. Our cocker spaniel puppy, Pearl, has been offered a variety of delightful toys: squeaky unicorns, bones, and rope toys just to name a few. Even with all of those options, her favorite thing to play with is an old pot from the veggie garden. She will run after that thing for hours on end. Every time one pot is nearing the end of its usefulness as a toy, we bring out another and she is excited all over again. Strange what pets (and little people) focus on. It's like they know that keeping things simple is best.

Happy Easter from all of us at Kerby's. If you need some beautiful flowers or just a little time out in the garden, come see us on Friday or Saturday, when we'll be open normal hours. We'll be closed on Easter Sunday for a little much needed family time. We'll probably end up in our gardens too.

I can't believe that another month has passed us by, and now we are coming up on Easter weekend. Usually, we'd be preparing for our annual Easter egg hunt, stuffing thousands of eggs and getting ready to hide them all around the nursery. But, for another year, we are going to take the hunt virtual. Watch your Facebook and Instagram feeds over the next four days or check out this link to our website for a daily nursery picture filled with Easter eggs. To join in on the hunt, simply count the eggs and send us your guess. On social media, share the picture in your stories or news feed and tag us @kerbysnursery, include your guess in the comments, or e-mail us at with the date of the picture and the number of eggs you counted. We'll select one winner out of the correct guesses from each picture to receive a $40 gift card to Kerby's Nursery. Winners will be notified the week after Easter. Our virtual hunt won't take the place of the fun we have every year watching kids takeover the nursery with their baskets in hand, but it will give you and your family a little fun searching the plants for Easter eggs.

Happy Gardening,

The Kerby's Nursery Family
