I'm bad with flowers.
Really. I suck.

I have this built up area right in front of our house, and I just suck. I've decided that a Lilac bush will go there.

I love Lilacs. They're beautiful, and smell fabulous!
Infact, our babysitter has 3 nice ones in her yard right in a row, and she needs to take the middle one out, so we're going to transplant the middle one (which is kind of small) to my yard, probably in a couple weeks.

This year I haven't been planting, but normally in Feb/March I plant pansies (the most unique ones I can find at the local nurseries) as a border around my front bed. I love to garden, but haven't been doing much of it this year

Not a dern thing. I live in an apartment complex that has landscapers come in and do all of our planting each spring. I did put up a hanging basket of ... some sort of orangy flower.

Robyn...I know what you mean. I am horrible at keeping plants alive. I would like to give it a try though. I would like to get some perrenials...like daffodils...and some garden statues to put out front. I need to get plants that can take partial sun and partial shade because of the area I plan on planting them in.

No flowers - I just kill them. But I have lots and lots of veggies!

I planted tomatoes. They died. I planted peppers. They died too. I fertilized and nearly killed the lettuce and the spinach I planted. Then I scrapped off the top layer of soil and replanted peppermint, peppers and garlic. My peppermint hasn't sprouted yet, but it hasn't been 10 gestational days yet either. The garlic sprouted in my fridge. Since I had all these empty pots sitting around with nothing in them, I planted all of it rather than throw it away. Man, has that stuff been growing like wildfire! Two days in the soil and all my plants have grown at least three inches.

I can't grow tomatoes, but so far I am a whiz at garlic!

I've been planting lots of things lately and mostly they are dead. I planted some kelanchoe and so far they are thriving in this drought. I planted a pittosporum and it looks dry but is still alive. I planted a jasmine vine and it lost its flowers but is still looking somewhat chipper. I have my best luck with cacti. You can't kill them.
