Almost Summertime

The recent beautiful weather has made me want to spruce up our outdoor space.  I really feel the need for something "green" on the front porch... the only problem is I have a black thumb.  You'd think as much as I love the color green I'd have a green thumb, but I don't.  I inherited this unfortunate killing of plants from my mother.  Justin, however, doesn't seem to kill things as quickly as I do, so there is hope for our house.  I think I just have paid attention to my plants very well before, so I'm going to give this a try.

I really like the way succulents look and I think they are pretty easy to maintain, so they're first on my list to find.  I think I'd like a few inside as well.  Here are a few inspiration pictures I've found:

Aren't these colors fun?  (picture from Apartment Therapy)

I think these look fun, too.  (picture from Florabundance)

I'll post what we put together as we do it.  I think I could really like to garden.  When I was little I would help my dad in his garden and I used to make mud pies, I generally liked playing in the dirt.  I think there's hope for our yard... only time will tell!

Do you have any suggestions/tips for me?
