2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Protecting the Trunk

March 29, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

I wanted to replace the winter wreath on my front door with a new bright spring one. It's artificial so it has a fighting chance.

But as usual when I go to Armstrong, I get captivated by all the pretty flowers. I ended up coming home with a hanging basket and three pots of spectacular blooms.

Now, if you're a long-time reader of our long-term updates, you know that I don't have any luck with green things and probably shouldn't be anywhere near them. But it's been three days so far and I'm happy to report all the pretty flowers are still alive.

Armstrong gave me a sheet of plastic to protect the Beetle's trunk from soil and water. It fit perfectly for what I needed. The pots were in a box but the hanging basket leaked all over the plastic. Nothing ended up soiling the trunk.

I couldn't resist bringing home this chubby bunny either.
