Green Thumb

I've turned into one of those people. You know that one neighbor who is all about their lawn and garden. That person is me. I never thought I would care so much about grass seed, lawn mowing, planting flowers or fertilizer. I spend so much time on the garden web forum that I'm thinking about setting up an account!

I recently bought a packet of flower seeds, Gaillardias to be exact. Gaillardia flowers are Native American flowers and are supposed to be a hardy perrenial. Just this week I saw several little sprouts where I planted the seeds. I was so excited. You would have thought I just won the lottery!! I'll be posting photos soon of all my hard work, including pictures of my Hostas, which are HUGE this year. Below is a photo of one of my Peonies. If you look closely you can see an ant on one of the leaves. So pretty and they smell amazing. Coda even sniffs them from time to time :).
Getting my hands dirty,
Monica

  1. I googled Gaillardia and was surprised to find I love these flowers. Never knew their name. Can't wait to see pics of their bobbing and weaving heads in a breeze. Beautiful Monica <3
