Grant and I headed over to the nursery (plant not baby) this morning. I wanted to pick up some tomato and herb plants....As we were perusing the aisles. I walk past the Martha Washington geraniums. Grant stops behind me, picks up a purple and white one and says "Oooo Robin they're so pretty"I turn around thinking he's mocking me. "Yes Grant, they're pretty". Grant: "No seriously we need to put more colour in the flower beds this year..." "Okie Dokie ??" (still not sure whats gotten into my big manly Superman)
Grant: "Robin I'm serious, you know I love flowers." (No I don't think I had committed that to long term memory) I launch into a "we've already spent enough money on flowers this year" monologue. In the middle of which it dawns on me, as Grant is loading the cart with foliage I am wasting my time. We are not poor and my Superman spending $50 bucks on flowers will not break the bank.
Tonight the kids and I planted sunflowers
some pepper pants
tomato and strawberry plants. We have decided to try container gardening on our super sunny deck this year. (I have found almost a dozen huge pots at the second hand stores...all for under $3 each)
Now if I can just remember to WATER....
