Planting Flowers

Months ago my husband bought me the plant stands below.  I was very confused as to why he would buy these for me since I really don’t like dirt but when I asked him he stated that they were on clearance and really cheap.  I finally decided that if we were going to keep these plant stands that they needed plants on them so the other day I went to Walmart and bought these 9 bright red pots and today I bought a rather large bag of dirt.  The back of our house is yucky and gross and I rarely ever go back there.  The ground looks dead and my husband has yet to clean the siding so it’s a little funky (he takes care of the outside and I take care of the inside of the home).  My daughter and I filled the 9 bright red pots today full of dirt and seeds.  I thought that if I put the pots back where it was yucky and gross that once they start to bloom it wouldn’t feel so bad back there.  Maybe we’ll even want to take care of it back there.

planted are poppies, catnip, assorted herbs, wildflowers, perenial mix, marigolds, nasturtiums.  It’ll be bright and colorful.

Our dog really enjoyed being outside with us as well.
