A Gardener???

I don't know about you but I have always considered myself a "brown thumb"

Well, one of the vows I made to myself when we moved into my childhood home with my mom was that I would give her a pretty garden at some point.

Well....I'm working on it, and she has been very pleased with the results...luckily for me she loves almost every flower and lots of petunias (can you say easy to grow?) Here are some Cala Lilies which were already established in her garden but they are just the prettiest pink so I thought I would share it with you.

Also, here is a pic of one side of our veggie garden, we grow one every year but this is the first really good garden we have had in a few years....We picked our first cukes (5 of them!) and squash today.....yummy!

Happy thursday! The green thumb-in-training

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog!!! You threw me for a loop when you said your name was Karen and I saw Recycled Rita (which, by the way, is clever). Can CA. have enough Karen's?

Nice to meet another Californian. I live in Orange County and grew up in Long Beach. I'm not far from my roots.

Sweet Dreams, KJ

P.S. I reposted because my brain wasn't working... Time to go beddy by.

Looks like your "brown" thumb is working towards green pretty fast- you're going to busy in a few weeks harvesting all those veggies!

I think I have a PINK thumb; it certainly ain't GREEN!! LOL Love your garden, my little cherub!
Smoochies,
