A flower's appeal is in its contradictions - so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect. ~Adabella Radici

One of my new obsessions has become gardening! I started out with one or two pots and that just wasn't enough so I added one or two more. Well, that just wasn't enough and I had to add ten more pots. At one time I had over twenty pots on my tiny little concrete slab. I guess that you could call me "the pot lady." It got so bad that we had no more spots to put plants so my dad helped me buy some wood and I painted away to make a new and beautiful shelf for my many plants. I LOVE IT!! Not only do I love flowers on my porch but I love them in my hair and in my girls hair too. The brighter and bigger, the better. If I have an empty spot in my house that needs some extra touch...I put a flower there. I've recently gotten into herbs too and have enjoyed eight different varieties this summer. SO FUN!!

Wow, your plants look great! I'm not good at remembering to water my one tomato plant, so I'm guessing I won't be a great gardener. Sigh, maybe someday! Very cute, colorful pictures!
