My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

If I found $100...

If I found $100, I would run to the store to buy flowers for my yard. I know that sounds so selfish because there is so much need out there in the world, but a selfish streak just hit me! I love to drool over the plants at Lowes and Home Depot but I usually talk myself out of buying them. I keep telling myself that I need to buy a dress for this important breakfast coming up and I'm spending money on our trip to Washington DC and I'm spending money on scrapbooking etc. so I feel too guilty to buy plants. I have decided that after the trip to DC, I am going to budget my money and I will spend about $20 each week for the rest of the summer (about 4 weeks) buying plants for my garden. Another reason I don't want to buy them is that if we are gone, I won't be here to water them and I don't want to ask someone else to do this. I was in Charleston this weekend and saw some beautiful gardens and I felt jealous! Then today, I went to a friend's house with a beautiful garden! I am committed to making my gardens look pretty...as soon as I return from DC!

I hear you! I love gardening (but right now its winter) my garden is lacking some TLC! And when I go to someone with a nice one I feel jealous!! Good for you, (don't feel guilty) about keeping some money aside for your flowers!

Go ahead and be selfish!! Money spent creating beauty is not wasted. (like my quote!!?) Love to see pics of your garden when you get the new flowers thriving...

For the last few years, DH has bought me a gift cert. for flowers for mother's day and that way I don't feel guilty...he's a genius, isn't he?? :)

My garden looked good for about 3 weeks, then a heat wave (for Germany) hit and it's gone to pot(no pun intended). I keep looking at the drooping flowers and thinking that I need to replace them, but I never get around to it.

gardening is so good for the soul- think of it as an investment for your soul
