While grocery shopping…

I spotted these tiny succulents tagged with some helpful care instructions:
“For general information and accurate care instructions please consult reference material in local library.”

Whoever potted these could have just as easily included the actual care instructions on the tag; “Direct sunlight; moderate watering; fertilize monthly.” but they directed people to the library instead. Is this a bit of a cop out or completely awesome? You can probably guess my answer.

    AHA! It’s a subtle ploy by the local library. They are using plants to nab people to consult their reference departments. Quite a sneaky marketing technique if you ask me!
