Here is my "garden" this year... such as it is....

I am SO bad with flowers! I mean, I LOVE them.... but after a month I seem to "forget" to water them ... like when it is REALLY hot... and of course they all die. I decided last year that I was just not a gardener. I might try perenials.... since they don't need DAILY care. Well, maybe for the first month... but I could do that LOL!

Well, then the flowers start to arrive in the stores.... AND.... I've been talking with my friend Daphne of Back Road Bears in New Hampshire... and she's told me about the TONS of flowers and plants she's been planting! (which, by the way... I can't wait to see in person in August when I go there for the 2nd Annual Maine Teddy Bear Show!

So...... I got one large plastic pot - for my petunias for the sunny back deck. I figure the plastic will certainly help keep them from drying out... and the fact that the pot is large will help too.


We have over a dozen nice large trees on our property... providing wonderful shade for the front of the house! My Mom always used to have impatients at our house because all we had was shade.... so I decided to try those this year. (Now my Mom is too busy having fun down in Kentucky to plant much anything LOL!)

I'll let ya know later in the year if these have survived LOL!!!

    Wow, Laura Lynn. I have NOTHING this year! With our yard being re-designed, it was a tough call but I chose to do NOTHING to coordinate with the "no grass" thing we've got going on!
