It's springtime AND I have my very own yard, so it's time for me to find my green thumb. Growing my own herbs, flowers and more has always been a goal of mine. Now that I'm a homeowner, I've decided to stop putting it off and dive right in...
Last Sunday was all about planting. Hours were spent in and out of Lowes and the backyard. I planted a small herb and vegetable garden, an orange tree, and some potted plants for our deck and patio. We even potted a fiddle fig leaf tree for our living room, which I could not be more excited about.
Sunday was exhausting, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the hard part has just begun. I now feel like I have several "babies" to nurture. Each plant enjoys sun, water, and nutrients in different ways. Google has become my best friend in my effort to be a good plant mom.
I just LOVE the way live plants can really change the feel of a home. Our spaces feel even cozier now that we are surrounded by greenery. I am eager to plant more and more, but I'm trying to be patient and pace myself; I need to make sure this first round survives my newbie gardening skills.
This weekend is Plantasia, so I am hoping to pick up some great tips and tricks. Come out to support a beautiful cause!
