Yep. Sure enough. There are those of us who would prefer to extend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend into more relaxation. We’re expecting sunshine and warm temperatures here in Los Angeles, so why not relax in some of the year’s most comfortable weather, even on Cyber Monday.
Technology has given us portable devices that make it easy to lounge in a hammock, or snuggle into an outdoor swing or seating area and shop from home. Why not take out your i Pad or laptop and check out all the money-saving discounts on the Internet — from the comfort of your garden?
While you are at it, take a look at some of the ways gardening is going cyber in Los Angeles or keep informed of local changes that will affect gardeners. Keep up on weather forecasts to plan your gardening. Or check blogs like the rain blog to find out what will be happening with your future water bills. Look into buying smart irrigation controllers and find out where to recycle plastic pots locally. See what other Los Angeles gardeners are suggesting on their blogs and scroll through the latest sales and plant introductions on the websites of your favorite Los Angeles garden centers. And look for the best local deals on gardening holiday gift items. Check out the best prices on the latest tools or even see if there are any irresistible offers on snow tires if you are planning a holiday trip into the higher elevations. There are actually plenty of sales going on for gardeners on Cyber Monday.
While soaking up the California sun, Cyber Monday is a perfect day to shop for that digital camera that will allow you to get crisp, exciting macro photos of your flowers when they come into bloom or any of the colorful insects like Mourning Cloak butterflies, cicadas or photogenic velvet ants that are found in Los Angeles gardens.
If you have built an outdoor room or other protected space in your garden, you can keep busy all day finding the right deal on an outdoor television, garden speakers for music or the handy tool you want for your barbecue area. And if you are serious about your gardening skills, Cyber Monday will also coincide with the weekly Internet #gardenchat where garden-enthusiasts from all over the country gather to discuss the latest gardening issues on Twitter from 6 to 7 PM, Monday evenings. Join in the #gardenchat cyberworld while snuggled outdoors in your Los Angeles garden as the sun sets. Have fun in your garden on Cyber Monday!
