I was going to get Jon to write up a little blog about this particular topic but I didn't. Truth be told, I had little to do with today's post. In fact, this is about how far in depth I got into this project.
"Jon! Look at this! Look at this little garden! I want one!"
And in my defense, that's about as close to this project I should be!
So I found this little beauty on Pinterest.
Isn't that gorgeous? Obviously, I fell in love at once and wanted it. Problem is that while most people are born with a even a semi green thumb, I was born with a dead thumb. I cannot, I repeat, CANNOT make any plant grow in a container. I can grow a garden in the ground but not a container.
Luckily, I married someone who has 2 green thumbs. Jon's a hobby gardener and has impressed me quite a bit throughout our relationship with his beautifully green plants.
(I'll never know how he figured out the appropriate watering methods... I over water or underwater. And by underwater, I mean forget I have a plant until it's brown and crispy. lol)
So when I approached him with the "little garden," it was no big deal. And he was glad I spared some poor plants life by asking him to do it instead if taking matters into my own hands. I told him what I wanted it to look like (organized chaos, natural, a place I'd like to be if I were an inch tall...) and within a few days, he'd selected plants and the container and put it all together.
Eep!!! Isn't that gorgeous?
It's just perfect, better than I had even imagined!
