My hubby & I have been married over 40 years.
He's a semi retired auto mechanic. Cars are his thing & gardening is mine. Today I found this on my table when he came home from the store. Thought it was very sweet since he usually grumbles about my plants Rolling my eyes.

Congratulations -- forty years you say? Must be doing something right. Keep on trekkin'.
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

LOL Green. Sorry they are all spoken for. I think I did a pretty good job with training hubby. He knows if he brings me flowers they better have roots attached. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
But all kidding aside, he really is a great guy. nodding

You have done a good job training. Hilarious! I have always felt the same.....no flowers for me unless they have roots.

I'm always willing to try growing something. If you do, it has a chance. If not, it has no chance. That is better odds than any lottery... LOL!
