Gardening has never been a love of mine. I've always TRIED to like it and get into it, but i think having been forced to help in my moms when i was younger is what kills it for me.
Anywho, so here's what i've accomplished while trying to enjoy gardening..
The front garden has always been 'ok', so i added 5 more perennials to it today:
This little side garden has always been a pain in my arse, i love it, and it gets great sun, but it's full of nasty ants(i believe due to the peony), oh and i try to avoid gardening in it because i don't want to scare 'Chippy' from his home(a chipmunk lives under our porch)..here's the before shot:
And now for the AFTER shot..it took about 1/2 hr and now all it needs is some pretty mulch! (and Chippy doesn't seem to be scared off, so yay!) :)
And now just because, i'm going to share a close-up from my Fuschia hanging basket. Fuschia's are absolutely my FAVOURITE plant for hanging baskets, and when i went out to buy one this morning, i found this uniquue one! (the flowers normally emerg from a 'ball', but this one is a weird longer shape..love it!)
What do you think? Any advice?
