It's no secret that I adore flowers and love the idea of somehow making a living by working with them. I really have no skills, but it's a passion that I would love to pursue and so what better place to start than in my own back yard?!
Off to HyVee we went to pick out all of our goodies!! Here is what came of our hard work yesterday afternoon (p.s. I LOVE that I have a husband that will do yard work with me!)
We loved these colors and the fact that they looked kinda tropical!
It's kinda hard to see in this pic, but this pot color is one of my favorites! I was so excited when I saw this color at HyVee. By the way, HyVee has decently priced pots (which is very hard to come by!)
Home sweet home :)
A closer view of the two pots (still hard to see the pretty blue). They didn't have two in the same style, but we thought it would still turn out ok, which it did--we were pleased!
Anyone guess what we are growing here?!
If you guessed JALAPENOS, then you are RIGHT!
Cilantro...mmmm....we loooove cilantro. It just makes everything better.
Anyone notice the cute buddy in the background? :)
One of the other flowers we planted in a small pot on our outdoor table. I loved the looks of these guys, and I guess they are pretty hearty.
One of my co-workers gave me some Cana Bulbs to plant...we'll see how it goes. I hope they actually grow...I would be so happy! I'll let you know how that goes :)
So, this is really our first try with any of this stuff. I would be thrilled if everything survives!
What have you planted this year?
P.S. Any words of wisdom from our seasoned growers out there?!
