I have never been able to keep a house plant alive. Even so, when we moved in to this house and I had a garden for the first time, I decided to attempt gardening. Here are before and after pictures of my front garden. I know, it's not much but I am very proud of myself for keeping these plants alive!
(It took me about 3 hours to dig up the big aloe plant you see on the right side of the stoop...it was a MESS!)
I don't know what the big thing on the far left is, it was under the aloe plant and started growing like crazy after I took the aloe out - I thought I'd give it a chance...is it a tree? Who knows.
