Ode to a green thumb

The joke around our house is that I like the idea of gardening more than I actually like getting my hands dirty. There may be some truth in that, but I'm really enjoying the process of learning to garden so far and am excited to see how things evolve in our yard.

Someday, I hope...

to use galvanized tubs for a pretty container garden on the patio
get some serious garden gloves
pot herbs in these antique inspired oil jars

have a wall of sweet smelling confederate jasmine
and have disk size hydrangeas to cut for display
Side note for readers in the Charlotte area.
We took a trip to Renfrow's Hardware in Matthews, NC last weekend. It was such a treat. Renferow's is an institution replete with old coca cola refrigerators, bails of cotton and chickens in the back near the greenhouse. I had so much fun poking around. This is a pick of just one of their seed displays. SO knowledgable and friendly too. Just look at this seed display! Would highly suggest a visit!!

Oh, this just makes me want to get out and garden. I have been thinking that I need to plant herbs this year instead of buying them. And, I must have those garden chic gloves!!!
