I'm planting my garden tomorrow! Elfin thyme, sage, bougainvillea, rosebushes, a red banana tree, and a bunch of other plants whose names I don't know. I will post pictures when it's done.
I have a black thumb, but it's okay - because I have a guru. Dean, at Sego Nursery - he helped me make a garden plan of action. He told me that if I follow his instructions, the plants won't die. (Sounds like a ransom note, doesn't it?) Apparently it's like cooking - yes, some of it is instinct, but with enough practice, the instinct can be developed. So there's a new goal to add to the list, a new skill to aspire to...gardening. How quaint!
