Generally, I'm pretty confident about my abilities in the 'crafty' (shudder - I hate that word! Can we come up with something better to mean the same thing??) or domestic domains. But when it comes to any sort of gardening, I fail miserably. I seem to be able to kill even the most hardy plants. But my track record isn't stopping me from trying to add a little life to my doorstop.
After looking at these sad, empty pots on my doorsteps all month, I had to do something.
So off I went to my home improvement mecca of the day and pick up a few random plants. I don't get direct sunlight so my choices are somewhat limited.
Of course I had to make a mess in the installation
And finally I had a little life growing. Thankfully we've had a crazy amount of rain this week so I can report they are not only alive and well but thriving (so far). Wish these planties luck, they have the odds stacked against them.
Any other black thumbs out there? What plants and strategies have kept your plants alive?
