Please Don't Die - Outdoor Edition

Spring + black thumb = annual desire to plant things and watch them die hope they survive.

This year we're trying potted plants.

Marie recommended geraniums begonias for the shaded porch

and colorful pansies for the sunny yard,

along with hanging baskets with strawberries 

and more geraniums. 

The rose tree hubby planted last year - and has sole responsibility for, which is probably why it's still alive - is producing flowers like crazy. 

Nice to know something can survive us!
