As spring approaches here in Amarillo, we'll see the hardware stores and other retailers putting flowers, plants, and other items out for sale.

Yup, it's quickly becoming gardening season.

I'll be the first to admit, I'm no gardener. Honestly, the thought of it makes my entire body hurt and my brain feel overworked. I appreciate those that take an interest in it though and follow through on it. They always end up having the most beautiful yards around.

The funny part about it is, I don't mind going to places and looking at all the stuff. It can be relaxing to be around all the flowers and whatnot, so I actually enjoy going to places to look at them. I just don't want to do the work involved. Call me lazy, it's ok, I can handle it.

Panhandle Greenhouses is one of the many places you can go in Amarillo for all your gardening needs, and now I have a reason to make it my one place to go and smell the flowers. This is incredible. You mean to tell me I can now walk around looking at the flowers and have a couple of beers while I'm doing it? Ok, now THAT is a plan I can get behind, and I might just mess around and have one too many and think this gardening thing doesn't sound so bad.

They're currently looking for musical acts that they can have come out and play some events, so if you're a musician looking for a gig, see below for who you can contact.
