$12 for 4 tickets to Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House July 16, 2010

If you haven’t been to the Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House at Fair Park in Dallas, you should definitely put it on your calendar! We visited it a couple of years ago and it was gorgeous. The lush grass and canopy of shady trees just begs for a picnic, and my son (then 2) couldn’t decide which was more fun — running around the giant fountain or sitting at the edge of the fish pond, watching the fish, frogs, and bugs.

Admission (for both the Gardens & the Butterfly House) is normally $8 Adults, $6 Seniors (60+), $4 Children (3-11), and free for under 3. Save a bundle with this deal! TODAY you can buy 4 tickets to the Texas Discovery Gardens & Butterfly House for just $12 total! If you’ll be in the DFW area any time between now and the end of 2010, definitely consider this one.

There’s a limit of two purchases per person, so get one 4-pack for you and give one 4-pack as a gift! This would make an especially good gift to folks who are new to the area or who will have company in town at any point between now and December 31, 2010. (Note that there is an additional admission fee during the State Fair, Sept. 24 – Oct. 17.)

Bring your camera and a picnic!

Expires: The tickets expire December 31, 2010.  The deal ends Tuesday, July 20, 2010.

 

SOLD OUT – $9.99 & FREE shipping – 4ft x 4ft Raised Garden Bed July 14, 2010

UPDATE: Wow! That went fast. As of this morning, Home Depot was still accepting orders but they’ve since stopped (as of 1:30pm CST 7/14/10). Sorry, all! Great deals go fast… Thanks to Wendy for letting me know!

In my backyard I have a garden with two wonderful raised beds. I love being able to just dash out the backdoor, mid-recipe, and pick my own herbs! This year we added lemon thyme to the mix. Our raised beds were lovingly made by my husband and son, and it took quite a bit of time and planning. SAVE YOURSELF the headache! Here is a sweet deal for raised garden bed structures that I’ve seen with my own eyes (my neighbors have them) — and they’re AWESOME!

Regularly $29.99, Home Depot has their 4ft x 4ft Raised Garden Beds on sale for just $9.99 with FREE SHIPPING! Sure, they’re on back order at the moment, but place your order and get in line. These are sturdy, visually appealing, and EASY to use.

So, what are you going to grow? Tomatoes? Fall lettuce? Flowers? Herbs? Melons! Here’s a tip: If you’re not able to get outside to water your garden regularly, or if you’re someone who is likely to forget, run a hose to your raised bed and attach a soaker hose. Plug in an easy hose timer and you’re all set!

Expires: August 31, 2010

Thanks, SlickDeals!
