a garden update

May 17 2013 227

this is the very first time Will and i have started a “garden”

aside from growing basil and some other herbs and plants on the balcony of our one bedroom apartment on the beach, we had never really put our green thumbs to test

nothing has required too much work

just some tlc, water and the right amount of sun

which as much as i complain about it year round, when it comes to the garden, i am happy we have it

joining the lovely Annie, mammasaurus for how does your garden grow

ps- i am not good with the names of flowers. people yes. flowers no
