This forces me to start thinking about my "garden". Obviously I use that term loosely, since I tend to have a bit of a black thumb. And my garden exists only in containers since I don't "do" weeding. Here is a little peak at last year's garden.
Last year I had the great benefit of starting with 3 perfectly made containers that were a bridal shower gift from my Mom. I also had some groupons, living social vouchers and home depot giftcards that really made it affordable. As I already mentioned, I'm not a gardener. Luckily, my Mom and my Grandma both are, and it's fairly easy to trick them into helping. Last year, I dragged my Mom around with me to at least 4 different garden places asking her "what should I get?" "What will not die?" She enjoyed it... she said it was great fun to spend my money. But then I made her help me put them into the pots.... hahahahaha.
This year, I have the benefit of pinterest to give me some ideas before I go out there shopping for plants that will die in a few months:
