About a month or so ago, I admitted that I have a brown thumb but bravely went ahead and gave some gardening tips for dummies anyhow. My tip for you today is as follows: Do not listen to me. For, oh yes, I have proven yet again that I am a gardening ignoramus and my thumbs are doomed to blackness….and not simply because of spray paint! Do you see those pretty yellow flowers in the hanging pots pictured above? Mmmhmmm. Well here is what they look like today.
R.I.P. unsuspecting flowers. We pause with a moment of silence for the departed. Sigh. I don’t know what happened. It was hot. I blame the sun. And yes, I remembered to water them. Of course I did! Well…on most days I think I did. On the bright side, one tiny sprig somehow managed to stay alive. That’s progress right? Gah!
To redeem myself, I’ll show you a picture of my impatiens.
Oh sweet impatiens, thank you for being my fail safe! You give me hope that maybe I can keep something alive for more than a fortnight. If all I ever grow is impatiens from this day forth, you now know why!
Please help take my mind off of my garden failure and show me what amazing things you’ve created this week! All tips and tutorials are welcome. Just add a text link back to my blog at the end of your post. I’m excited to see what you’ve been up to!
