Today, Ms Toni Morrison turned 83 years old. I just want to say...
"Happy Birthday Ms Morrison. You have been an inspiration to me, giving me the courage to sit down and write my novels. I hope you had a great day!"

Green Gardens located on Cass Street in San Diego. They offer such a great selection of perennials, annuals, shrubs, and succulents. Well, just anything and everything you could want. The staff was extremely helpful, available to answer any questions their customers may have.
I purchased a beautiful purple ranunculus and red anemone, bunking them together in the same pot.
Maggie purchased geraniums for her balcony, mingling the pink and white flowering plants together in a single pot for a fabulous effect. But I really loved the geranium with the multicolored leaves (left); I'm not sure if I've ever seen that one before!
I've been toying with the ideal of starting an herb garden in a contractor's garbage bag, so I picked up several packets of seeds. I had hoped to start them on Sunday, but didn't get to it.
Although up for a DIY project, I decided to take a look around the Internet to see if I could find better ideals. I want to go vertical off my banister, but I don't want to junk the place up. I found one ideal on that I thought was good; re-purposing shoe bags as vertical planters. I think this would work great for me.
You can learn more about ideas such as these on GreenUPGRADER.com. Another cool site I found was Windowfarms.com offer vertical indoor gardening solutions, sustainable year-round.
