Something got into me this year and made me want to get all earthy and plant flowers. I do not have a green thumb at all- in fact, I tend to kill anything we have- so this little project of mine should be interesting. Anyway, I went to pick out flowers earlier this week but after perusing the choices for a while, I became way too overwhelmed and came home empty handed. So, yesterday I brought Matt along with me to Lowes as moral support as I picked out my flowers. To tell you the truth, I have no clue what I picked out, but I do know that the flowers are yellow, pink, and purple. And they make me happy. And that’s all that matters. I think I underestimated how sweaty and dirty I would get planting 50 of those dang things, but I did it, and now you have to ohhh and ahhh over the results. (On second thought, it really doesn’t look that impressive in the picture, but trust me- it’s lovely.)Matt, on the other hand, has become some crazed farmer man with his vegetable garden on the other side of the patio. He goes out there several times a day to stare at his plants and ponder their growth. I think he’d make out with them if he could. I really hope they produce some kind of edible harvest because:
1. I would really like some home-grown veggies and
2. I think he’s going to cry if they all die.

  1. it looks like you have marigolds and impatiens. hard to tell by the picture, though. marigolds need sun, but impatiens needs shade. happy gardening!

  2. Well, I did actually go as far as to look to see which flowers needed shade and sun… that’s about all I knew to do!
