Hidden Beauty in your Pasadena MD Gardens

My husband and I both have farming in our family history. We have grown up on farms or around farms in Pasadena MD our whole lives. So plants, whether they be decorative flowers or practical vegetables are common things we are used to seeing without even really noticing them. In fact, when dating my husband, I told him I do not like flowers as gifts, because they are simply dead flowers and serve no purpose to me, I would rather have something else or a live plant. Which, I personally do not have a green thumb so when he would try and buy me a house plant it would die. Even succulents die around me. Currently his go to ‘I am sorry I messed up’ gift is a gift certificate to a local modern fabric store I love to shop in but hardly ever do, unless he already has gotten the gift card, then why not!


Back to it, my mother-in-law is great with plants, the wrap around porch on her home in small town America is perfectly surrounded by amazingly well thought out plants of so many colors. She really has a talent for it. She has houseplants on every floor of her home complementing each room housing a plant in the most fashionable way. Again though, that is what my mind expects to see when I see an old house like hers in Pasadena.
