Gardening?!?



Ok so the family that lived in our house before us were like super gardener's ..... I mean seriously.  And I am like wait what is a gardening?  So I have been attempting to garden the last few weeks and am proud to say that I went and bought flowers ALL BY MYSELF, I did have to have my mom explain what an annual and perennial were and what weeds looked like, yes I know I am ridiculous and just don't have a clue!  I just went and grabbed some "pretty" flowers and only two have died out of like 50 .... so I think it was successful .....  Anyways I went out yesterday and the family prior to us had planted two big peony plants and they are blooming and look gorgeous!  Peony's are my favorite flower and I was SO excited that I have some in my yard and that I didn't have to plant them! :) I am totally still learning, but at least I am trying right??

Yeah! Your flowers are beautiful, good work! That is a nice plus that the previous owners were great gardeners too, though :) I am really struggling with my flowers right now.

Nice work! I seriously am the least domestic person out there, so I really have no idea how to do all this "grown up" stuff. Gardening? What is that? Ha. No but seriously, it looks like your yard is beautiful, good job! I totally agree that we need to get together and do something...and soon!!

Well done... it looks so good... I planted some tomato plants and I think I am a little to proud of myself... Now lets see if you can keep the plants alive, the whole summer. That is the tricky part.

They look great! You don't look like a beginner, and you make me laugh about not knowing what a weed looks like, you are great Jess!
