I love flowers! When I was looking at pictures for this blog, I focused on pictures of flowers. Zinnias in a field looked so serene and inviting. I thought it was the perfect picture to open my blog. In my home, most of my pictures and paintings are floral. I'm now looking for a vibrant Georgia O'Keefe print to add even more brilliant, color flowers to my decor. I think my hubby feels like he is drowning in flowers some days. But he is a good sport and let's me do my thing when it comes to decorating. It's funny when I think of how I tend to focus on floral patterns whenever I'm shopping. I'll come home with floral tablecloths, floral bedding, floral curtains, etc. I guess you see where I'm going with this : )
Considering how much I love flowers, you would think that I have the most amazing garden at my home. Sorry to say that is not the case. I do have fresh cut flowers on my table at times. I love to compliment my friends' gardens. It would be great to have my own beautiful garden. I really don't want to wait until my retirement years for this dream to come true. I think my kids could be great helpers to start our family garden this spring. Who knows if I even have a green thumb? I may find out very quickly that I should stick to enjoying my flower pictures : ) I know it will be fun trying anyway. Hooray for the Internet! I'm sure I can find great gardening sites filled with tips for a beginner like me. I know the kids will enjoy getting their hands dirty too!
