Spring Has Sprung
Can you guess that I’m not much of a green thumb?
I love plants, I really do. I like looking at them, I enjoy the calming action of watering and I relish the chance to literally pot about with them.
But I obviously don’t love gardening enough to put in the time and effort to produce a garden full of beautiful plants.
Most of my garden looks like this:
or even this (pay close attention to the cobwebs…):
So I was surprised and excited this week to discover that despite my neglect, some of my favourite plants are still alive and thriving. Spring has definitely sprung and I’m so thankful and excited!
I have buds on my fangipanis!
The grass trees are flowering!
And I have a lilly bud – that’s most exciting!
It does help that I no longer even attempt to care for plants that require any sort of special care. An unfortunate experience with an orchid cured me of any lofty gardening ambitions early on. Now I focus more on hardy frangipanis, dracenas, lillies, agapanthus, grass trees and yukkas.
I’m looking forward to creating gardens at the new house based around these hardy varieties – I really can’t wait to put it all together and sit back and enjoy the view and our easy care surroundings!
Sharing my thanks today with Kate for Thankful Thursday.
BTW, how’s your garden looking on the cusp of Summer?
