Some girls get flowers…but I get an entire garden.
Kevin left work early one day, went to Home Depot and built me a garden for our backyard. I was so surprised when I came home to discover it. The next weekend, we went back to Home Depot to accessorize the backyard even more with a gliding bench.
Kevin calls it our urban oasis.
I was really nervous to make the leap and actually buy plants for the garden because I am terrible with plants. For some reason, I can’t seem to keep any alive.
On Sunday, after some research, we finally went to Home Depot (sense a trend here?) for plants and then spent the afternoon working on our garden.
- green onions
I really, really, really hope they survive. What surprised me the most was that I actually enjoyed being outside and getting all dirty and working in the garden.
We probably won’t see any veggies for a couple of months, but you can smell the herbs out there. It makes our yard seem so lush and fresh.
And…two days later…everything’s still alive!
I’m pretty sure there’s also some extra fertilizer in there in the form of cat poo. That just means Parko needs to spend more time patrolling the garden.
This is definitely one of Kevin’s best gifts ever to me. I just hope I can keep everything alive.
How’s your green thumb?
