Summer Flowers

Flowers can liven up any space, indoors or out, and I love having them around. Mary and I were out shopping one day and found a cheerful arrangement of flowers for the front walk. The only problem is that I don’t garden. Seriously, I love to learn new things but this is just not something I have mastered. Something got into me and I decided to tackle the project and it turned out to be so much fun! Plus, it has been fun to see it progress. It has been a few weeks and I haven’t killed them yet. Have you planted anything fun for this summer?


Petunias, Dahlias, and Agapanthus

Once again, MiricleGro is made for people like me!

Prepping for the holes…

I cut through the weed barrier fabric in an ‘X’ shape and folded it under.

Digging holes…

I added soil to each hole to help the plants live in our clay soil.

I used a knife to divide the plants in order to get more bang for our buck!

Happy Dahlia J

The finished border.

Our flowers growing in and all spruced up for the 4th!

Now all it takes is water daily and some fertilizer every few weeks. I am still experimenting, but this is a good start.
