If you can't grow 'em, take a picture
I admit to not really having a green thumb. I killed a cactus once, mostly because I hate them and totally forgot about it. Most of my houseplants survive simply because I get the kind which need little attention. My summer flowers grow reasonably well, but I wouldn't call myself an avid gardener.
But flowers are so much fun to take pictures of. Flowers are really one of the nicest things about summer.
