And it was long overdue. I went to Home Depot and bought an electric mower (less polluting, no gas needed, and really--our yard is TEENY), and an extension cord and mowed the front (Ethan can figure out how to get this thing down all the rocks into the even teenier back yard to do that one), and that was tons of fun. Smells nice! I also bought a bunch of seeds and some bulbs and a seedling grower and plant food. Did I mention that I have rosebushes?? There are some that are labelled. THese are the flowers I will have!!
There are a couple more bushes that arent labelled, but these will be a nice start! They are called America, Folklore and Tropicana. I also have some Hosta plants growing, one under the front steps and one under the deck out back. They are really pretty with huge wide green leaves, and will have a tall stalk of purple flowers later this year. I bought bulbs for lavender calla lilies and dark pink begonias.
It is so nice living somewhere where things grow! My black thumb is irrelevant here! These plants actually have a chance to make it!!
