I am not a gardener. It really wasn't until I owned my own home that I even payed attention to what people's yards looked like. When we moved into our house we knew there was a lot of landscaping work to be done and we thought it would be fun to do it ourselves. Well...some of it has been fun, but some has been a pain. Anyway, long story short, we have spent the last two years basically ripping out as much as we could and poisoning the rest, like ivy and bamboo. (NEVER plant bamboo!)
So I was excited when my mother-in-law gave us two gardenia plants to put in our front yard. This will be the first pretty thing we will have added to our yard. So sad, but true. I'm thinking we will put them in two planters to go in front of our steps. I just can't wait to get them planted and have those beautiful smelling blooms greet us everyday.
If you have any gardening tips I'm all ears!
