Day 159: PLANTS

Happy Tuesday and Day 159 of Another 100 Days of Hannah ...and Counting, y'all!

Let’s see… what to write about on a very muggy Tuesday morning? (Houston feels, anyone?)

First things first: my cactus that I planted last week sprouted! (Yes, I’m insanely excited about that.) In the last few months, I feel like I’ve become quite the plant mom, to the point where I honestly check them like three times a day. I know, I know, it’s a little excessive. But, PLANTS!

Which reminds me: about two weeks ago, I decided to start a new plant/landscaping project. Growing up, we always had flowers wrapping around the house (well, after we got rid of the shrubs anyway). However, as the house functioned primarily as a combination guest house and office for the last four years, weeds overtook the little wrap-around garden.

Two weeks ago, though, I decided to work the ground, remove the weeds, build up the dirt, and then plant new flowers (and possibly herbs) in this area.

The only problem? I can’t decide what to plant.

Part of me wants to plant sunflowers, but they take up a lot of space. As it’s the south side of the house, I need something that will do well with strong afternoon sun (and heat) – which probably isn’t most herbs.

And so, right now, I find myself with an empty plot of very wet dirt. (Thank you yesterday’s rain.)

From there, if anyone has suggestions on what to plant, please, please, let me know!

Thanks in advance!
