I am not a plant person........

A number of my LJ friends seem to be digging and shoveling and arranging and rearranging their gardens/beds/pots and whatever has got anything to do with/to/by plants. Well...... I don't. Okay, apart from the plants that are in hands of some people who actually care.
But still, there is a tiny little plant man in me. I have The Pocket Garden™ with mini sunflowers. The ones I have are supposed to be called "Big Smiles". So, give them another month and I might smile with them too. :)

I can usually keep plants alive, but my cats seem determined to destroy all things green in my apartment. Too many of them have had premature deaths due to my cats knocking them off tables or sometimes just eating them. I guess they tolerate not ANY competition for my affection...

Yes.... competition. When I bought an aquarium with five goldfish and a lot of plants in it, I hoped it might last. But I guess the fish really LOVE those plants, so I think I will have to make another purchase soon. LOL

Yes, nothing green stays alive for long here. :)

I think that's great and I expect pics if and when they bloom. It's cool if you aren't into plants, it's just something I like. I still like you... I guess. :-)

I will post as many pics as desired. I hope those "big smiles" come out nicely.

And...... I like you. Still.

I am sure. :)

heh... when we got the house 5 years ago I *tried* to like gardening. Made a big deal of it, huge garden and all that. Well, I'm over it... I never liked it. It's dirty, and tiring, and there are bugs. I tried, I really did, but now the garden is Bob's thing and I just make fabulous food with whatever vegetables and fruits he chooses to plant LOL

I guess that's the way to do it - play safely in the garden. That's just not my cup of tea. Nice to look at, but probably annoying to take care of. :)

I just did by balcony garden last night. I repotted my herbs, and plants in to nicer pots and found a nice stand to put them all on.

They'll be dead in a week. Good intentions; bad follow through. :-(
