Why Don't I Care About Flowers?

One thing I could never quite figure out: I do not care one bit about gardening or flowers. With fall rapidly approaching, I find myself looking forward to all the fall colors....leaves, flowers, the works. But, I have no interest what-so-ever picking out my own flowers and planting them.

For some reason, our flowers never last....I used to joke that the only reason I am good with dogs and kids is because they remind you they are there.

Sigh....is something wrong with me??

i really like getting flowers as a present, but i have never wanted to even try to plant any or have any form of garden. so i'm there with you. people are crazy about their gardens and to me it just looks like messy work. :)

I am the same way. I can appreciate someone else's handy work, but can't get myself motivated to get it done for our house. I try to read about plants and flowers, but my eyes glaze over and I just can't make myself care about it (even as much as I would really like to have a better landscaping presentation).
