In order to beautify and spruce their house up, curb appeal wise, an individual decided to plant some flowers around their property.
They decided on potted plants, as a matter of ease as well as the extra beauty that a nice pot would add to the landscaping.
Pulling into the nursery, they could see the long rows of every plant, tree, shrub, and flower imaginable; as well as those exotic cultivars that were just shipped in time for the spring.
Walking down those rows and being inundated with so many choices, the individual decided to just see which type caught their eye and would look stunning lining the walkway.
They did that and placed them thus along the walkway…
...and they died not a month later.
Acknowledging that they were green-thumb challenged, they nevertheless persevered and bought some others that ultimately received the same fate as the first.
Truly disheartened, they took some time off from gardening to refresh; maybe starting again next year after they learned some more.
However, during this hiatus, they saw various types of plants that absolutely thrived and grew big, strong, and fast in their yard.
It dawned on them that their yard was more than adequate for these plants to grow, so they naturally landscaped with these.
