One thing I have learned after being a home owner for a couple of years is that no one gives you an instruction manual when you move in.  I was lucky and got a beautiful home with a gorgeous yard.  The woman who lived there before me was a green thumb, and her love of gardening was evident the second you looked at the house.  I have tried and tried and tried to keep up, but to be honest my yard and garden looks horrible - I need help!  I am super exited for the Flower and Garden Show Saturday at Wagner Nursery!
