Dear November

Let me start off by saying that so far... 

I love you.  

The mild temperatures reminding me of summer.  Reminding me of the many, many hours I spent tending to my gardens.  




Talking to my flowers, and just plain loving my beautiful gardens.

Lush green grass, bountiful flowers, and a veggie garden that would make a grown man cry. 
Are you crying yet??

My Friend Andrea, a fellow blogger, wrote about her veggies from her garden and secretly I felt... 


I mean really.  Who wants a beautiful veggie garden that produces TONS and TONS of Beautiful, Fresh, Delicious veggies that you can just go out and pick whenever you want... when you can have this...
I mean, Seriously people.  Wouldn't you rather have my tomato plant?   
Tell me this isn't GORGEOUS!

Okay, Okay... I'll admit, I didn't pity Andrea...  

I pitied my garden.  I wanted to have beautiful veggies like she did.

A few years ago, my Sister-in-Law lived with us and we used to accuse her of killing our plants.  I don't know why, we just did cause it was fun.  

Then she moved out.

And our plants continued to die.  

I am starting to think it may have something to do with me... (even this beautiful orchid has slowly started to die)
In my own defense, I have to say that I have asked for an electric edger and a leaf blower for my Birthday for as long as I can remember.  

I mean, you need tools to have a nice looking garden, right?

My Husband laughs and tells me that an edger and leaf blower are not going to grow better tomatoes. 

Is this true?

Nah.  That's Absurd!   


Oh... P.S. 
I'm also not good with pet fish.  

Just sayin'...


  1. Very funny :) I don't have a green thumb either and my garden is full of perennial plants that basically take care of themselves. All I have do to is weed every year.

    P.S. That orchid is gorgeous.

  2. Thanks Paula! I wish I could say that we spent the summer weeding... but we didn't.. Perhaps next year. :)
