It's that time again. Time to plant. Time to make things grow and then try to keep them alive. Which I rarely succeed at. I have a blue thumb. As opposed to a green thumb. My thumbs are pretty much any color but green. And yet, every year I try to plant something and make it grow and flourish. I either over-water or under-water. I forget to put them in the sun or to prune. I usually buy things already blooming because I can't screw something up already bloomed, right? Sure. Just watch me. ;)
Every year I try to plant some herbs and grow them in my kitchen. This year, I picked oregano, basil and lavender. You know, the yummy-smelling herbs.
I bought some small clay pots and painted them with slate gray and bright yellow.
After that dried, I taped off the top and spray painted the base with some chalkboard paint.
And once that dried, I removed the tape and took some fine grit sandpaper to the pots. I wanted a sort of worn look....
I like it.
Yum, oregano. Makes me think Italian for some reason.
What are you planting this year?
