First of all, do NOT let the title of this post be deceiving as I do NOT have a green thumb. Instead, I am, just like blogging, I am trying to improve this green thumb. My husband has always done all of the outside work and he enjoys it. Plus, he is very good. However, this year, I decided I’d try planting some flowers again. Last year, my MIL bought me a beautiful Cala Lilly and killed it- of course! Three years ago, I tried planting some hydrangeas– killed those too.
My mom is wonderful with flowers! Every summer she has huge pots of flowers around the pool and they are just beautiful. I am trying one more time to see if I can teach myself to have a green thumb like her.
So today we ventured to Home Depot to purchase some annuals and see what I could do. I settled for some daisies and petunias for now. I already had an awesome pot from TJ Maxx for the daisies and bought the basket to hang the petunias. I hope to try my “thumb” at some hydrangeas again too, but they didn’t have any.
Petunias were planted in a basket and hung by a shepherd’s hook.
So thus begins my green thumb adventure- Wish me luck… and any gardening advice is always welcome.
