Someone’s got a really big green thumb

Jealous? Oh I am. Iā€™d show you pictures of my gardens, but Iā€™d be showing you pictures of my weeds. Ugh. Lots of rain, no time = weed infested.

We’re not even discussing the little woodchucks dining on said weeds.

How about you? Green thumb or black? Got pictures?

    Black thumb. And does that one section look like a smiley face to anyone else?! I’d love to have a lush English garden. But unless I marry royalty or a really good landscaper, that ain’t happening.

  • So pretty. I think I’m more of a gray thumb. I don’t kill plants right away; they usually die slow, agonizing deaths. Except the areca palm the cat ate. He went quickly.

  • Wow Carrie! It was so nice of you to show this video of my yard.

    Hah! I wish. If it were my yard there would be a battalion of deer armed with clipper-teeth and a brigade of flack-jacket-wearing gophers burrowing attack tunnels.

    I used to be able to grow things, even had a pretty garden before the beasties set up house-keeping. Thanks for the memories….

  • I bought a poster of an English garden. That’s as close as I’ll ever get.

  • I love to garden but mine never looked like that! I’m jealous too.

  • Gardening is on my bucket list, but I’m not sure I actually like it. Last year I had a nice little vegetable garden and I don’t even know what some of the things were I grew. Freaky little green things is what I called them

    Next year I’ll try again. My daughter has an amazing green thumb, but she didn’t get it from me!

    • I’m more of a “bulb” person. Plant it and forget it. But those darn pesky weeds!! augh! why can’t weeds just have pretty leaves and flowers on them…it’d be easier!

  • Green thumb definitely. I practically grew up in a garden. My parents have always planted, replanted, weeded, cultivated and then there was canning (I still hate canning). We always had a lot of house plants plus a garden plus a property in the country with fruit trees and shrubs and a lot of grass to mow šŸ™‚ Now I grow an organic garden right in my backyard. It’s really tiny but I get some veggies and herbs for cooking. I have house plants and pretty flowers in the flower beds šŸ™‚

    • Oh I hear you about the canning. My first canning project was kosher pickles. I was (and still am) terrified of the pressure cooker!

  • That’s beautiful!
    i would like to think I have a green thumb. But I plant then leave all summer. Plus I live in the foothills of the mountains which isn’t a conducive grow zone for anything. however, I have HUGE garden envy for anyone who lives almost anywhere else.

    • The garden envy thing is universal I think. Even watching golf on TV I have golf course envy with their perfect plantings and smooth grass!

  • I am gardening challenged. Anything I touch either dies or gets overtaking by weeds.
