Ok, I must admit, I am NOT a gardener! I try, I really do, but I just don't have that green thumb. This year, the rest of the family is in charge of the backyard vegetable garden, and it's actually looking pretty good. I am just in charge of the flowers. I love lavender, so last year I planted five nicely sized plants. Well, two of them are doing great. The others...well I hope they survive. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I treat them all the same. But, at least those two have lots of beautiful and great smelling blooms! I'm seeing some cute little sachets in the future. Maybe made out of vintage flour sack fabric or antique handkerchiefs. Antique shops, here I come!


  1. hmmm, I wonder if we are related? I have the best intentions of growing plants; it just doesn't seem to happen well. =)
    btw, how about sharing that made from scratch banana cream pie? Would love to give it a try!
    blessings cuz,

  2. Yeah, it must run in the family...
    I got the banana cream pie recipe from my good ol' Betty Crocker Cookbook :) It's pretty easy, just involves a lot of stirring "until thickens"

  3. I want a garden more than anything... So far I have only kept the basal half-way alive. Im sure there is a gardening for dummies book for us!
