I'm not much of a gardener. Truth be told, I don't really like digging in the dirt and getting my hands dirty. (Though I don't mind if my hands are dirty with paint, ink, or some other art media. Go figure!) I enjoy flowers but don 't like spending all the time planting, mulching, weeding, watering. I want to have landscaped. But, I did buy some pansies, and I managed to get them in the planters before the flowers died. And the miraculous part, the pansies have survived in spite of me! I just love the happy little pansy faces peeking out from the planters.

Are you a gardener? What flowers are you partial to?


  1. I'm not much of a gardener, but I love flowers. Pansies are a particular favorite of mine! ;)

  3. I love flowers, planting, watering, tending. Love spring time and getting it all started and watching them grow up and be beautiful.

    Some of my must haves are impatiens, geraniums, petunias, those are always winners. And I try many new ones each year to see how they do. Some of my favorite perennials are peonies (love, love, love the smell), lupine, black-eyed susans, iris, daisies and painted daisies.

  4. I want to have landscaped? ROFL!!!! Me Too!

    I always get enthusiastic as spring approaches, and I plant lots of flowers. Then when the heat comes and it gets sticky and buggy and weedy, my interest fades...

  5. I try but my thumb isn't green. I plant them and forget to water them.

  6. I'd love to garden, but we really don't have land. Ahh...for the proverbial someday....
