A beautiful planter to help with my not-so green thumb
As much as I hate to admit it, I have never really had a green thumb. In fact in college during my horticulture class, one of our assignments was to take care of a plant the entire semester. Let me just say that it was a good thing that I had enough other points to get an A in the class because my golden pothos, Goldie, didn't quite make it the whole semester. I either over water or underwater. Now that being said, I love to have potted flowers as decor for the outside of my house during the spring and summer month so I was very happy when I had the opportunity to receive an amazing new planter from Avant Garden Decor. I knew it would be the perfect way to accessorize our new deck.
I thought it would look amazing underneath the window on our deck and I think I was right if I do say so myself. (And as an added perk, it took The Farmer less than 5 minutes to put together.)
The really tough part was deciding what to plant in my planter. I'm usually a wave petunia kind of girl, but when I saw these zinnias I knew that they would be perfect. Now we just have to keep it alive during this record setting temperature summer. We've done OK so far, but I'm a little nervous about the zinnias surviving our upcoming vacation so I added this water bulb to see if it will do the trick.
I must admit I'm not holding my breath and worse case scenario, if the zinnias don't make it, I will still have an amazing planter to use again next year and beyond.
I must be honest though as much as I like my new planter, to Little Sissy, the best part was the big box that my planter arrived in... it made a perfect hiding place for her.
