Flowers, meet Veggie Gardener. Veggie Gardener, meet Flowers.
In a lot of ways, I just don't 'get' flower gardening. I think I'm way too right-brain oriented to design a proper flower bed, which is why the one in front of our house laid neglected for so long. This past weekend, I was determined to do something about it. So I went to my favorite local plant nursery and spent WAY too much on what I consider to be the 'sexy sorority sisters' of the plant kingdom. And just to illustrate how much I care, I threw away all of the plant tags without reading them so I can't even tell you what I planted.
Peonies are among my favorite flowers and this one was the prettiest of the lot. I can't remember the exact name though.
And this purple thingy looked interesting so I snatched it up.
I think this is a chrysanthemum of some sort but alas, I can't say for sure.
Ok, that's enough about flowers. Let's get back to the veggies.
