I don't have a garden- nor would I be able to manage one. But in the spirit of Spring, I decided to buy some flowers and decorate my porch with them. I hope to keep each of them alive and thriving, but history proves that plants don't like me to mess with them. In fact they'd be better off alone. The plant I pay the least attention to in my house, is the oldest plant I have. It's almost 2 years old. That is a record for me.
These flowers came with minimal instruction, it is just the delicate balance between sunlight and water. So by fall, I'll let you know if there is a lustrous, lush, plume of flowers enveloping my deck, or if there are three empty pots sitting on my porch.
