I'm not much of a "green thumb". In fact a couple years ago I intentionally tried to kill off house plants just so I didn't have to take care of them. I have changed a bit since then. Although, I have a LOT of learning to do in this plant business!
This year I actually planted a garden and flowers! I have flower beds everywhere. The are a little overwhelming to take care of but I am doing my best. The lady who lived here before me was obsessed with the whole flower thing I think. I have even dug up FAKE flowers and leaves she had outside. Crazy. I do appreciate a lot of her work. She left behind a bunch of plants that come back year after year which is really nice.
The area photographed is a small pathway from the driveway to the backyard. When I first moved in there was a GIANT sunflower growing on the right and a bunch of rose bushes on the left. This year I planted more sunflowers among other things. They seem to be easy enough to care for. I didn't know they were going to be so big though. I thought the package said 10 inches high but I think that was the flower head measurement. Whoops!! Guess we will see what happens. They are still growing tall =)
ANYWAYS... this whole post was suppose to introduce one of my new hats. Inspired by my own little flower beds
It can be found HERE. I hope to see it on a sweet little newborn head one of these days.
