My story is fairly young as well. Have always enjoyed flowers, but really no interest in growing them, until last year. We moved into this house 3.5 years ago and I preceeded to completely destroy the flower bed (it's huge, runs the full length of the front of the house and is about 8' deep at one end). It turned into a weed patch until last year, took 2 days to completely clean it out and transplant in many natives + just generally pretty plants (peonies, iris, lilies, sedum, goldenrod, shasta daisy, yarrow...there's more lol). Then started learning. Researching the plants and bugs I found (there's an ant that when you squish it smells like Citronella! Haven't done the squish test yet...), and fell in love! My houseplant collection is growing too
Thankfully my husband doesn't care what it is or where it is so long as it's not a weed patch. He dutifully nods as I tell him of the days growings
Currently excited because some English Lavender I started from seed in February has a bloom on it!
