Even though it is winter, plants and flowers are available everywhere. I recently began my own small garden of herbs I use regularly: parsley, cilantro, and mint.
Mike will tell you that I am really bad about caring for plants. I once let a cactus die from under watering. So I am pretty sure he thinks I will kill my garden or he will be left to care for it. So far I have been good about watering my plants. I am really going to do my best to let my little garden flourish.
