༺ Pink Petal ༻
This fabulous 1950’s reproduction tea rose dress never fails to brighten my day with it’s perfect profusion of petals and pink fabric! I wore it to church this Sunday, and I’m so happy it still fits over the baby bump. Not many of my ‘regular’ dresses do any more, but that’s hardly surprising I suppose! (*◠。◠*)
What I am also loving are all the wonderful roses I have blooming in my garden at the moment. That’s why you are being treated with lots of different angles of my front yard ~ rose bushes included. (- ヮ •) ~ ❤
It also means I can wander out my front door whenever I choose and cut as many roses as I please to sprinkle throughout my house.
This makes me even more sure that I am a ‘flower’ gardener, and not a vegetable gardener…
So the story goes that for my birthday last year I was given a vegetable garden from my in-laws. They helped dig, build and plant the garden for me as well as supplying the vegetable plants.
My veggie patch looked so grand and well organized for a least a month or so, but then…
The weeds came!
This happened while I was away for two weeks in a row, so lo and behold, I come home to a veritable jungle.
Then I was saying “Okay, I need to weed the veggie patch” for about five weekends in a row, and well…. I gave up before I got there…. (#￣Д ￣#) *mega embarrassment*
A combination of having no idea how or where to start, plus having let it get so far away from me, meant I never really got into the veggie garden idea and discovered that I’m much better with bushes, trees or flowers.
Give me some secateurs and I’ll prune all the things, but weekly weeding is beyond me apparently. After all, you do only need to trim and shape maybe once or twice a year, so there is the whole time factor, not just “Weeds are scary!” (¬_¬)
So what are your favorite things to grow? Flowers, pot plants, herbs, plastic plants? A little bit of green is such a nice thing to have around I think…
