Sometimes I even impress myself.

Living two minutes from your parents means you never know when they are gonna drop by or just drive by.
And since my parents keep their yard and plants magnificent, they would definitely judge me for not doing the same with mine.
{Which is not a bad thing because it keeps me on my game.}
These are my BELOVED children.
We have cilantro, thyme and rosemary.
It feels so "Chef-y" to be able to use my own herbs!
Here is my... OK I don't know what they are called but they are big and pretty.
{P.S. Was informed by the very smart and very beautiful Ashley that they are called Lupine!}
{And yes, Minnie got shaved and is having a complex about it.}
This is my hybrid flower.
Last year there were two flowers right here.
A yellow one.
And a purple one.
Now there is only one.
Its yellow, white, and purple.
I know.
I am amazing!
We shall call it... The Blooming Samantha.
These pretty girls are called Columbine.
They just keep getting bigger and bigger.
And all I do is water them.
Good deal.

Wanna know the best part of all these flowers? 
I planted them all last year and now I don't have to do a single thing!
Exciting huh?!

Beautiful Sam!

If I'm not mistaken, I think the pink and purple ones are called Lupine. (possibly spelled wrong).

Aren't perennials amazing?

I love looking out at your beautiful yard. Even the birds like your yard better.
