earlier this week danielle and i decided to head to a nursery–the roof deck garden at home depot in lincoln park, to be specific. with the intention of buying outdoor flowers. in an attempt to plant them and... pause for shock... keep them alive ALL SUMMER LONG.
of course i love flowers and plants. but as i've discussed before, keeping them alive has never been a strong suit of mine. so we went with the easiest to care for–a miracle gro premium plant sold exclusively here in chicago that, if all goes as promised, should blossom tenfold into a big huge beautiful goliath-sized flowering plant in a matter of weeks. i'm sure these plants usually grow right on schedule, but with me at the helm, this lil' blush pink number i decided on is going to have to work for it.
tonight's a girls night and then i plan on visiting michigan to see my darling niece, sister, and brother-in-law. fun times, full steam ahead!
any plans for the holiday? anyone doing any gardening and care to share some tips?
