Brown Thumb

Theo's class planted the moms beautiful flowers for Mother's day gifts.  I'm not sure the name of the plant (I know nothing about flowers) but it's yellow and beautiful.  Each morning since receiving my gift, Theo has been excited to water and watch the plant grow.

Seeing his excitement, got me thinking about the possibility of starting a flower and vegetable garden in our yard.  We've lived in this house for the last 6 years and I haven't done anything to improve our curb appeal.  I feel blessed to live in a lake community with miles of lush trees and water but I realize that I don't spend enough time embracing my surroundings.

Alvin planted some flowers in a jug a few weeks ago and they're coming along very nicely.

Hopefully  by next summer,  my brown thumb will officially become green.
