I'm not sure if anyone remembers me, I'm quite the lurker!

Anyway, I was wondering if there are any ladies on here that have a "green thumb".

My mother and I plan on jazzing up the front and backyards this year with flowers, and decor! Last year we didn't get to, because she had a heart attack and was extremely depressed, so this year I've made a vow to do it with her! And I can't wait!!!

I plan to put some flowers, and have two pots near our front entrance. We have a step-up type thingie to enter our house, and I think it would be a beautiful touch to add! But, I have no clue what flowers to pick!!

I'd like to strip our deck completely and stain it, but that takes time, and as soon as the snow melts ( !) I plan to start at it!!!

Does anyone have any ideas for me????

What exposure is your front porch? Do you have a green thumb at all or is it more of need really hardy plants?
I have a moderate green thumb, takes time and patience but it's getting greener every year

I would love to help you out but I am so not a gardener. I can't seem to keep plants or flowers alive.

My mom is a fanatic when it comes to gardening. She tries to get me into it, but no point cause A: I dont have a yard, and B: im not really interested. My gardening would be buying a hanging plant and hanging it up. I've thought about a vegetable garden for when we buy a house in a few years depending on the yard and how much sun, etc.
