green things…

June 27, 2008

and no, we’re not talking in the environmental sense…(although we could be…maybe?) anywho, I just happen to love the color.  In fact, I acquired quite the “green thumb” today…in a very literal way

from painting green things…

(this is just a teaser, I know…but I’m only on layer 2, so you’ll just have to revisit this little blog in the coming weeks to see the completed project)

Oh and if you were impressed with this small miracle…take a look at here…

That, my friends, is basil in my garden…but not just any basil…real survivor basil!  As in, I gave up and left the pot outside to freeze last year, and somehow, someway, this little baby just kept on growing…(maybe I should be nicer to it this year.)  In fact, maybe I should keep my green thumb in paint rather than touch the plants in my garden….they seem to grow better that way…

Happy Friday folks!

    I want to grow some vegetables (or herbs) now! (Even though I detest vegetables beyond spinach, lettuce, corn and potatoes…) It seems so .. I don’t know, neat to grow something you can eat.

    Ohhh, and I sent the local editor lady of Skirt! my info.. and she said she’d keep it “for a future” profile and also that she “liked the idea of local-made soap” so maybe that’ll turn into somethin’.

    Happy Sunday! 🙂
