Now, I am not a gardner, I don't have a green thumb, and when people give me plants, I tend to forget about them until they die. The chives, though, needed to go. It looked like a jungle behind our house. I went to the garden store, and bought pansies, and a Rose of Sharon, which will look like this when it grows:
After buying the plants, I returned home to attack the chives. Since I'm not a gardener, I don't own any gardening tools. So, I tried to rip out the chives with my bare hands. It was ROUGH, but I did it. My hands still smell like chives. It's disgusting.
Once the chives were gone, I covered the area in white stone:
I still need to plant the pink Rose of Sharon, but the pansies are all set:
I plan to buy more brightly colored pots and put flowers in them.
After I finished I was ready to relax with a glass of wine!
Does anyone else have a garden?
