I am trying very hard to cultivate (get it?) a green thumb and maybe this is the year. The problem is I tend to forget the plants....actually believing they should be able to take care of themselves. And, then they die. Who knew. So, here you can see a row of terra cotta pots I painted over the winter in preparation for planting flowers. In this case, a row of dahlias. And, as you can see, one has bloomed!!! It is a miracle.
