Pics of the "His and Hers Gardens"

Will come soon!! Promise!
And I will be more diligent about blogging!


Last year, Michal and I wanted to add some color to the yard, so we bought some "Love Lilies" which are really pink Oriental Lilies. They were our first labor of love and a few lilies turned into two Japanese Maple trees and then on to three gardens. So, Michal and I decided that we were each going to have a garden. Being a lover of the beautiful SHADE LOVING impatiens, Michal subconsciously chose the shaded garden (which just happened to be more developed and already tilled, etc) while I got the piece of shit on the other side of where we keep the trashcans (mind you, this area was not tilled and had, and still has, a huge weed like plant).

So, we go to Home Depot to pick out our flowers and each get a basket and go our separate ways. In search of some color for my "garden", I look to the diverse collection of impatiens that are sitting beautifully on the shelves, calling out my name. As I go over there, I see Michal picking up some lovely New Guinea Impatiens. Well, great minds think alike! Until he tells me that my "garden" gets full sun and I can not do impatiens. How convenient!!

Nevertheless, I went with some full sun Celosia and some Marigolds. They did not have much to choose from, so, with my blank slate of hard dirt and weeded background, here is what we have!!

Did I mention in here that Michal thinks that I should blog about the fact that I cannot "listen to a loving husband while blogging?"

It's About Time

Hello all,
I have finally decided to join the blogging network and become a person of the 21st century. The name of my blog couldn't depict my life more: do I blame the dog or the husband? In most situations, it is a little of both: I get that ornery smile from Michal, batting those big blue eyes at me AND the turning of Giseles head, along with her droopy eyes that say "Im sorry Mommy" all over them. So, I wind up blaming myself... Nevertheless, the past year has been quite an experience, raising a dog and a husband:)

So, in an attempt to stay in communication with friends and family, and to pull myself a little bit away from my facebooking addiction, I decided to blog. I'm new, forgive my mistakes or errors and feel free to speak your mind!

Cheers to you all!!
All our Love,
Court, Mike and Gizzie
