Hee hee! I think I need to take lessons from eoe.
I love to do things on my own, with mixed successes. I'm pretty handy, in terms of putting things together (Ikea furniture makes me very very happy). I'm NOT doing well with gardening, though, which makes me sad. I always thought I'd have a killer garden if given the opportunity. I do OK, but I'm not good with details. Like, I'll plant a passel o' petunias and they will be healthy and look great and the colors will coordinate well with the lavender I planted and the colors of my house, but WHAT is going on with the shrubs? They were there when we arrived, the landlord (we rent) doesn't know what they are, and they're getting scragglier and unhappier with each passing year and I just don't know what to do with them.
