What happens...

...when left to my own devices. 

I go crazy in the garden department and get home with a car full of plants, pots, and soil.
The garden at my house was pretty empty and in need of some color. I decided on hibiscus, lavender, and bougainvillea to start. I have so many ideas of other plants I want to integrate into my new little garden.

It's no secret that I am highly envious of my sister's gardens. She has amazing flowers and a separate vegetable garden. I may not be able to achieve the level that her veggie garden is at, but I can try to have some gorgeous flowers like hers.
I am seriously loving all this new color in the garden. I didn't have a private yard while living in Albuquerque, and now I do. It's going to be a new and fun adventure getting this garden to grow.

Until next time.

Well... now the other one just went away... very strange... I just wanted to tell you that I too am prone to excess in the Garden, Home and elsewhere when left to my own devices! I Love your choices for the Garden, it will be a great place to hang out in and commune with Nature.

Lovely lovely flowers! My mother always kills ours, I don't know how! Every year it's the same flipping situation. Are you happy to be home? Especially now with all of this colour to fill your private garden space :) said...

Oh, I will share my garden with you anytime, you know that. Also, your space is perfect for an enchanted courtyard garden. (I have some plants for you too)

Just water - and find plants that will stay alive easily on their own.

I will talk to you about it later. Oh and, don't overwater the Lavender or else, a quick demise. It happens to me everytime.

You chose such beautiful colors!!!

Love, Sisterrrr
