I've been working on the back patio area of my place; trying to get it cleaned up and get some flowers planted.
I think I have my mom's green thumb and a love of getting things in the ground.
In D.C., Jeff M. and I got in on a plot in a community garden. In one day (maybe two if we needed more supplies) we'd have the entire thing in. That included the buying of plants, turning over the ground, running off the crazy guy who's "project" was chainsawing a pile of random wood, and actually putting the plants in. We'd spend the whole day at it and then it was done.
We didn't plant flowers - except for my precious peony which is still there - we focused more on veggies.
I wish I could say my patio area was done, but nope - I've been working on it for a few weeks now. Jeff M. would be so annoyed with me! But then Jeff and I didn't have cold rain and 150 mph wind in May!
I have visions of a "secret garden", so the goal is to get it finished tomorrow night!
