I just love flowers don’t you? The color, the scents, and the overall “oomph” they can add to a room really just make me smile. Plus they make a great addition to any room as a touch of décor.
(Alex smiles less in the spring because of pollen. I do not share this poor affliction.)
So is it any wonder that I wish I had a beautiful front yard full of colorful blooms? Not to me! I wish I had a yard that makes passer-by’s go “Ohh and AHH.” A Martha Stewart meets Home and Garden by way of Country Living style yard if you please.
I also have a black arm. Not just a thumb. Or even a hand. Nope, the whole dang arm is black. It’s an affliction I tell you.
I honestly think plants look at me coming and go “Look droopy fellows, quick! She won’t pick us if we look weak.”
In fact, my boss recently gifted me with the most gorgeous potted Orchid. Alex’s response when he found out my gift…”I’ll pray for it.” (I hope his prayers are strong…the thing will need ‘em!) I want it to live, I hope that counts!
So I tend to stick to fake flowers. I may have to dust the darn things, but hey at least my table looks great!
What about you? Are you any good at growing things and keeping them alive?
