I hope you enjoyed the devotional thought on spring cleaning our homes, but more importantly our hearts! Just for fun before we move on . . .
Can you complete this quiz?
Each summer for years I filled my planters with annuals of all kinds - marigolds, petunias, spikes, vincas, geraniums, alyssum, and many others!
Last summer I slowed it down to a red, white and blue theme only. Geraniums, wave petunias, and the nearest thing to blue I could find . . . really a shade of purple . . . and the name escapes me.
This summer I plan to stick with wave petunias and some green filler like a spike or a fern. Red and white it will be. I have six planters to fill and one hanging basket.
Why do you spend the money on flowers? Spend the time to plant them and then the time to water them?
I assume you are like me - - - I get such a great joy at looking at them - the colors are so bright and they look so inviting. Most of my flowers are on and near my patio. One of the most peaceful places I go in the summer.
Challenge #1 - For the next hour spend some time in "planning" either in your mind or actually on paper - your garden! Be ready when you hit the greenhouse to go directly to the items you need . . . or it's just like grocery shopping . . . I end up with some beauties that I really don't have a place for! I can't resist! Then come back and reply in the comments how your planning session went and share what you hope your garden (flower and vegetable) will look like!
Happy Gardening! Eligible for prize drawing if you can share a picture of your favorite flower or vegetable or a picture of what your garden has been in the past or your hope for this year!
