Well, I finally did it. We bought some flowers on the weekend and planted some flowers in the box in our backyard. Since today is the 29th of February because it's a leap year, I am truly hoping that this will bring some luck and let the flowers live. As I have posted before, I am not a very good gardener nor a green thumb nor have the talent to grow any kind of garden. The one thing that I hate doing is pulling weeds as you have to sort of bend over or kneel or something. At the beginning the flowers looks good without the weeds around it but as Jeff tells me, after a few days those damn weeds will be shooting out and I have to keep up to ensure that they don't take over and cover all my pretty flowers. For those of you who have beautiful flower garden in your front or back yard, you probably will provide some suggestions or comments. Anyway, here are the photos I have taken for my BEFORE pictures. I will try and post another one a month from now so you can see the results of my leap year efforts.

Each morning after breakfast, I go out to the backyard to check on the flowers to make sure the squirrels have not ruined it. Apparently sometimes they dig out the flowers so they can hide their snacks. I truly hope they won't do that to my flower box.
