Green Thumb

I can't actually take credit for any of these flowers, but I bought the house, so I will. They are my flowers now. Ha ha ha. It is another beautiful day in Fort Wayne. It actually got hot in the house today. I considered turning on the air, but decided against it because it would take a lot of work to close all the windows. I am currently reading up on gardening, because our lovely neighbor came over this morning to tell me that our yard looks like crap, and he wanted to mention it to us before he reported us to the neighborhood association. Lovely man.

I was actually planning on doing some landscaping before he even came over. And I do mean that. I went to Meijer this morning and looked at flowers, and I actually have planned out what I want to do in our front flower planter. Now I kind of feel like not doing a thing just to piss him off. But I'm better than that. I'm also better than that because I don't feel the need to try to intimidate 23 year old women. But I guess we're all different, aren't we?

If you know anything at all about gardening/landscaping I would love to hear your comments or tips. Right now I'm going to work on flowers, but I do want to start a garden as well. I may wait to do that until next year so that I have the time to devote to tending to it. I am really excited about growing our own food. A while ago I posted about how I was wondering why I wasn't interested in more things, I felt like I didn't have any hobbies or anything like that, but now that I've moved into our own house, I feel like I've really expanded my interest of cooking, and thats probably what I'm obsessed with now. :) I needed room to express myself. So please, share your ideas.

I had another flower photo shoot yesterday at the kitchen table. If you have any idea what these flowers are, please tell me. I thought all I had out there were daffodils, but I have no idea what these are. I mean it, tell me. You guys were the smart ones about the spoon with one hole.

I got this awesome vase for Christmas, I think. It's a Riedel vase like the one I got for my bridal shower. Go to their website and check out their decanters, they are pretty awesome.
