Most of us that grew up in the 70's & 80's remember the Memorex commercials of Ella Fitzgerald and the high pitched sound that breaks the glass. Well who could tell anyway, I mean it was a commercial. It was marketing. Well as our house has been on the market and we have staged it, fixed fences, cleaned out carports and updated bathrooms there were some things that we did to help with "marketing". Recently my father in law moved in town into an independent living apartment so he could not care for all the plants that were out at his house. Not wanting them to die William brought them home and we have been caring for them. They are lovely and many of them William's mom planted, took care of and kept up before she passed. Well we have window boxes all around under these old metal lever style windows. There are three under our dining room window that are in a ton of shade and before we moved the fence the sprinkler would not hit it and I would forget to water cause it was around the side of the house.......So once the fence was moved I decided it was time to plant something really pretty to look at outside the window........I then began to look at some other flowers around the patio comparing them to some flowers I have that are not real in the house and it is amazing how real they can make flowers now......so you decide. Are they live or are they Memorex.........
