Plant a Garden of Flowers start with the mind-set, “I want to watch flowers grow each spring and always know they will be returning to their beautiful glory.”
In my world of Plant a Garden of Flowers, I like to grow perennials so that each spring I can know that something spectacular is about to happen.
Working year round in a garden can be over-whelming to the beginner. But it all starts out with a simple plan of action.
Research the interent for plant ideas and information. Check out Gardens and Crafts
Prepare a landscape design for your garden
Ask friends for cuttings of their plants.
Shop garden centers for discounts, Lowe’s and Home Depot .
Check our native plants to your zone.
Look around at neighborhoods in your area and take photos of the plants you like.
Go to your local botanical garden and wander around and see what’s blooming.
When we moved into our current home, I brought with me hosta in grocery bags that laid in my yard for a few weeks before I could get around to planting them.
I also talked to my friend, Michelle, and her and I applied to the County Extension for a Master Gardening class. I was thrilled when our names were selected! Having a friend that loves gardening is one of life’s treasures. Michelle shared more than gardening we shared love of friendship. Life is better with a Garden Buddy.
Life gives us choices and just like a garden, I want to be assured of tomorrow’s beauty and friendships. Some things are taken for granted, sunshine, soft breezes, birds chirping, and the sweet smell of flowers. They remind me God’s beauty is all around. What if you wake up one morning and suddenly your eye sight has diminished and left you blind. What if your hearing is slowly changing to silence? Think how life would change if you couldn’t enjoy the beautiful flowers along life’s pathways. God has given us some many things to be thankful for. I want to inspire each of you to Plant a Garden of Flowers and you too will be assured of God’s beauty season after season.
God Bless the gardeners!
