Spring has sprung in Pintester land, and even the Pintester is not immune to wanting to create some outdoor garden magic when the air gets bright with nasty green pine pollen. I decided that this year I would redo my mailbox planter, bane of my existence with regards to the front yard. It has looked like actual shit pretty much every year since we moved in.
But this year will be different, thought I. This year I will make it look like this:
I found the exact plants. I dug up my mailbox planter. I unearthed some gross giant bug larvae that I failed to take pictures of because I was too busy dry heaving.
And then I planted my plants. And now my mailbox planter looks like this. I suck.
