If you stick around for long you will know that I have the brownest of thumbs. My husband tells me it is because I don’t water or weed, but that is untrue – sort of. I have great intentions with houseplants, flower beds, gardens, but they all end up the same way unless I have help.
This is the year! I am going to make something grow, bloom, and flourish all by myself. I would love to make some major changes to our yard, make it prettier, with native plants, and attractive to butterflies and even bees. But first, I am going to start smallish and not take on too much. I have big dreams of a big garden and I am going to make sure I have a small one live first.
