I am not awesome at growing things.
I planted a bunch of perennial flowers in these beds last year,
and this is how they looked about 3 months later -

The blubs peaking through here 
are seriously indestructible.

Even with the failure, I tried again.

Also, taking the tree out in the backyard
left a large area of non-lawn.

Instead of putting expensive sod in,
I wanted to see if seeding would work.

Let's see if the flowers and grass actually grow.
I'll let you know in about a month.

monkey see.

This monkey saw the professionals  
and decided to do the same thing 
to a smaller tree.

I forgot to take a before picture, 
but the "small" tree was still like 18 feet high.
Here's the how it turned out:

It was hard,
and tree debris scratched my eyeball.

Monkey saw.
Monkey did.
Monkey blind.
