AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
We bought a bunch of annuals and perennials at Lowe’s a few days ago. Unfortunately, they don’t plant themselves. I spent 3 hours Monday planting and potting. Some houseplants needed a lot of attention too. My honey brought over his neglected houseplants. He doesn’t have much of a green thumb. It all looks great now so it was worth it.
