My Not So Green Thumb

What color is the opposite of green?  Because that's what color my thumb is.  I'm awful at keeping plants alive.  My dad got us a few flowers to put in a pot in the back yard and it took less than 2 weeks for them to look like they'd been abandoned for 6 months.

I decided it was probably smart to find something that was a little more hardy, and so I thought succulents and cacti might be a fun way to go.  I really wanted to do some cute cactus, but I was afraid to put those near where the girls would be, so I saved those for our mantle.

We had fun taking the girls to Home Depot and picking out the plants.  David decided to give his thumb a try and picked up a ton of seeds to plant with the girls.  I knew it was time to put these pictures up here today when some of those seeds from Sunday started sprouting!

What a great family activity. Pics are great as well and I love the hat Olivia has on. And your arrangements look so good. You may indeed have a green thumb after all Sis. I'm impressed!
