Flower Power

Planting herbs gives me great joy. I’m in love with basil, rosemary and mint. If these three herbs are not in plenty on my deck, then Houston we have a problem. We also have four planters that I fuss with daily. In two I planted creeping jenny, purple calibrachoa and a calamagrostis acutiflora for height. In the others I placed a boxwood in the center with alternating creeping jenny and blue star creepers round the exterior. My minimalist approach to ‘gardening’ keeps me sane and gives me just enough landscaping to tend to. That said, my husband is our groundskeeper. He is officially obsessed with mowing our yard, watering the beds, weeding the beds, seeding the yard, and trimming all the trees, flowering plants and shrubbery. He’s my #LawnBoy and man does he get after it! It’s his pride in our lawn and attention to detail that gets our lot a double take. #GreenThumb
