This summer I decide I would try my hand at a little gardening. My mother and grandmother are fabulous in this area, I was praying I inherited their green thumb. I used to hate it but now that I am older and I really wanted some pretty plants on our screened in porch. So I decided to give it a try and off to Lowes I went. I started off with a few ivy plants and geraniums. Then for our anniversary Bob bought me some impatients and a hydrangea plant (which is my favorite flower). I also planted some herbs which have been wonderful especially the sweet basil.

My escape is our screened in porch. We recently got some new chairs and I bought some fabric to make some pillows and such for the outdoor space. I can not wait for fall so that it is a little cooler and I can enjoy being out there longer than these hot days. For most of the summer these flowers were beautiful but sadly I think combined with the intense heat and possible overwatering they are not as pretty now but for a while I had my first little flower "garden". I really enjoyed my fist gardening expirience but sadly I am not sure I inherited the wonderful green thumb. We will see next year.
