#2 April Showers Tag - Rainboots

Here in Central TX we have had April showers.

My rainboots I wear when watering at part-time/seasonal plant nursery, Calloway's Nursery, job are gray. When I went looking for rainboots couple years ago I only found child size in stores so I ordered the gray ones from Target online. Since I did not want anything fancy or expensive I got the gray ones for $39.99.

Photographed the tag I created with Lavender I rescued that was being tossed out at Calloway's Nursery; so it was free for the taking. When I took it home I did not know what the plant was since the tag was missing and thought it smelled like mint. Planted it and it has grown taller and after the flowers appeared I was able to id it.
