Brown Thumb

  I love flowers...and plants...but they DO NOT love me. As much as I would like to say that I am a gardener...I can not lie. If you gave me your heartiest plant...it would be dead within a month. No kidding. Y'all...it's P.I.T.I.F.U.L. I think it makes my mom sad...because she has a great flower garden...and can pretty much make a plant rise from the dead.  I have two plants in my entire house...and here is their current state...

But when I saw these pictures in my new Country Living Magazine.. 

....I almost fell over and died with jealousy...and I don't even garden. It could be possible that what I REALLY love about these spaces is how they are organized using fabulous baskets, crates, etc...but I'll tell you one thing. If I had something like that in my garage...I just might work on turning my brown thumb to green.


  1. I love that wooden shleving with the baskets!!! I'm jealous too! I've never tried gardening, but this is the year! I'm going to give it a go!

  2. Country Living is the best magazine. I love to garden but I don't do indoor plants. I found it too hard to balence light and water in an air conditioned house. The only two house plants I did not kill were aloe vera and African violets. Outside I only plant the hardy stuff. I am loving my antique roses and landscaping roses.
