Pretty Flowers :)

I told Brandon I wanted a garden. He thought I wanted to do vegetables and herbs. Well, yes, but really I just wanted some pretty flowers. I wanted something bright and cheerful to look at! So yesterday we finally made it to the NEX Garden Shop. We decided to just buy some pots for the flowers. We got 3 pots, 3 flowers and a Colorama (what category is that in? Haha). I already had one pot at home. We got Zinnias and Marigolds, and some other tropical flower that I can't remember the name of... Anyway, I'm loving it! All weekend we worked on our patio doing some landscaping. We moved rocks, got some more patio stones and extend our patio a bit, tried to fill the holes Dexter dug, and moved the dishes a little. I think it looks nice, what about you?

Here's are zinnias and marigolds:


Tropical Flower thing:

I love it! So the next plan we have is buying a trellis and putting it somewhere in the backyard and then planting flowers that will grow up it. It'll look so pretty. We also plan on doing an herb garden but we need to decide if we just want to have those in pots too or have them dug in the ground. I'm excited!

Hi! I'm your new follower! And, this is very random...I found your blog through a comment on another blog I read. The comment said that you had shipped your dog from CONUS to Hawaii, and I was curious about that experience. I'm going to be flying mine over when his quarantine time is up. I'm worried about it, but I miss him already and it's been like 2 days!!

Actually, we bought him when we got on island to avoid that quarantine. We would've gotten a puppy earlier, otherwise. I love him though!
