pretty little garden

"Plant a garden, plant happiness." -Chinese Proverb

My new favorite hobby is gardening. Due to the lack of grass and soil in our backyard, I have started with a potted plant garden. So far I have several potted flowers in the front and back yard and am waiting for sprouts from the basil, chive, parsley and pepper seeds I planted this week. Unfortunately I did not inherit my mother's green thumb, so this is a learning process.

Here are some pictures...

Ok, you caught me. These are clearly not my garden. They are my inspiration though! Someday my pretty little garden will be as beautiful as these, and then I will post real pictures.


  1. Ha Ha Ha! I saw the first picture and was totally impressed... then I realized it wasnt your's! I love it! I cannot wait to see your house and you and Preston and Sebastian and Jesse and Fam.... I am so excited!

  2. I thought I was pretty funny too! Unfortunately, my attempt to beat mothere nature and plant flowers in the middle of summer in the desert didn't work out very well. The strong sun toasted half of the plants! I am growing the herbs and peppers inside and crossing my fingers for the flowers left outside, wish me luck!

    And we are so excited to see you!!!
