Looking for ways to make “stay-cations” fun for the whole family? If you’re planning any features on ways families can make their stay-at-home vacations more pleasant and less ordinary, you’ll want to consider xxx0000TV and its innovative flat-panel televisions for outdoor use.

Yes. That’s exactly what I want to do. This summer, I want to encourage thrifty Western New Yorkers to stay home, buy big flatscreens, put them in their gardens, and turn them all on. At once.
Actually, I worked on a “vacation in your own backyard” promotion back in the nineties when I was at a local museum; however, our program did involve leaving the house, and very few ordinary folks had flatscreens then. It looks like this year I’ll be revisiting those itineraries as we reluctantly downsize our—albeit modest—travel plans. Maybe this will be the year I do spring wildflower walks at our many local preserves (including Reinstein Woods at top); take on the Niagara Gorge trails I haven’t yet tried; and plan road trips to New York, Southern Ontario, Ohio, and Pennsylvania horticultural destinations I haven’t yet seen. For anyone with the least interest in nature or gardens, there is an amazing bounty less than two hours from Buffalo in any direction. But you know how it is. We mean to do things and then don’t, and of course there is my own gardening, with July’s Garden Walk looming over those efforts.
No, I don’t think I’ll need the flat-panel on the patio. Not quite yet.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on February 18, 2009 at 11:00 am, in the category Real Gardens.
