No Green Thumb Here...

I would be the first person to admit that I do not have a "green thumb". In fact, I would probably be the last person that should try to grow anything plantlike. But this year I have decided to give it a try. My wonderful sister-in-law Megan was generous enough to give me some leftover flowers... She had overestimated in how many she would need. So I decided to make some nice welcoming pots on our front porch. Kaden just wanted to help by watering them after I was done.

Not only am I trying to keep these flowers alive for more than a day, I have decided to be ambitious enough to start a vegetable garden in a couple of weeks. We will see how that goes. Wish me luck!

Those look really good! I don't have a green thumb either by any means but Adam and I are going to try and grow a blueberry plant this year. Kinda random plant I know. :)

I find getting my hands dirty in a garden is very therapuetic!!! Hopefully you have the same experience. Good luck. You will enjoy a garden so much.

They turned out beautiful! So liberating to have healthy flowers. Here's to keeping fingers crossed for both of our gardens this year!
