Sometimes my mom will get me something and say "I got you this _____. It should go in the _______, next to the ________, on top of the _________ that I got you.
Usually it works out, because it'll be something that wasn't really on my radar at all, and so if she wants to contribute it's just an added bonus.
She brought over this planter (specifically intended to go in our backyard on our patio).
The next day she dropped off the exact plants she wanted me to plant in it.
So all I had to do was get to work...
BeiBei was getting SO EXCITED about her new flower buffet!
You see, I probably could have told my mother that BeiBei MIGHT destroy this. But there's a famous expression in our family, "You didn't Ask."
Hopefully, BeiBei will be able to resist, cause isn't it fun & pretty...?
Good Job, Mom! Thanks for the backyard addition.
I'll post another picture once it's grown a bit.
