100_3893_2 I love gardening!  I came back from Pete's Garden (wish there was a link to this place) with oodles of awesome plants.  I mostly got herbs (silver-edged thyme and golden thyme and variegated sage) and container plants for my pots.  Something about a garden nursery just thrills me to pieces!  I don't know if it's  the fact that it is finally warm outside (80 F today) or that all of these flowers will make my yard beautiful or that I just love digging in the dirt or that I love to watch things grow or that I can change my garden at my whim….*shrug*

What's the answer? 


Anyone else have a strange affinity for gardening?  The weird thing is that I'm not *great* at it – there are some people who just have a natural green-thumb.  I do have a sense of the style of a garden and the color-scheme is pretty easy to figure out – the part that is hard for me is figuring out which flowers for which soils (ours is heavy clay) and watering needs. (we need a LOT in our drought-like summers)

So basically I have no cool, witty ending to this blog post.  Just that man, I loves me some flowers.

    “I loves me some flowers.”
    Me too! I’ve been excited for the spring weather so we can see what this yard looks like in bloom. Nuthin’ much so far. *sigh* But that can be good, right? Fresh canvas, I guess.
    Your climate and soil sound a lot like Kansas City. I’m totally impressed that you can get your garden to grow, Bethany. I’m hoping that Rochester is like Toronto — virtually foolproof conditions! 😉
