I shall plant only cactuses

In celebration of my new passion in life, landscaping design, I decided to put foliage on my blog. Pretty, eh? In the future maybe not so near I will wow you all with my landscaping design skillz. As for now I am reading all I can get my hands on and hope to take some classes in the next year. This landscaping will be a small business venture so I can still be around for Petunia. Marrying an entrepreneur will do that to you, think you can go out on your own and all. Work for the man? NO WAY! I would rather toil and sweat and go bankrupt and work a bazillion hours a week and never see my family oh and spend thousands of dollars in capitol calls so my business (es) will flourish. I work for myself but am killing well, myself. I’m not really bitter about itJ really I’m not, it will be great in the loooooong run.

Anyhoo, off topic. I imagine it will be several years before I see any fruits (ha ha pun) of my labor especially since I know nothing about landscaping, flowers or plants (really anything green) but am determined to learn as I love to be outside digging in the dirt. See this plant.

It is the only plant I have managed not to kill in my over 30 years on this earth. A Christmas cactus. I don’t think anyone could kill a cactus. My tendency is to not forget to water but over water. This doesn’t bode well for my new business venture. Don’t tell anyone.

    My husband has the very same habit of over-watering our indoor plants. He’s very proud of the one that he’s managed to keep alive though I would rather it disappeared! I ‘don’t do’ plants that are just foliage. I love love love flowers and plants without them just seem a bit dull. Good luck with your entrepreneurial adventures.


    ps. haven’t forgotten I owe you weather tips. Right now we’re in the middle of the ‘worst storm of the winter’ so it’s not very inspiring to write about! We’re bunkering down inside. x

    I think discovering a new passion is amazing. I like the header. 🙂

    I’d rather kill myself working for myself than ever work for anyone else again.

  3. Love the title! Can’t wait to hear more about adventures in the dirt.
