The more I get into gardening, the more I realize how fun but time consuming it is! I’ve recently written about how I was able to get my 4 beautiful bushes for next to nothing from some folks who were looking to get rid of them from their yard from Craigslist. Also be sure to check out freecycle, as they have so many great things people are looking to recycle as well.
I’ve been working more and more on the landscaping at our house and having fun trying to plan out what I want to plant. Everyone has their own taste of things they like and I love driving around looking at how other people have done things to get inspiration.
Last year, I was at Marvin’s Organic Gardens and I fell in love with a hydrangea bush in white! As soon as I saw it I knew exactly where I wanted to put it in my own garden! I was so excited this spring to see it come back to life and it has grown three times the size!
I’ve learned that there are particular flowers and plants that definitely strike an emotion with people, sometimes it’s something that reminds them of their childhood, or an heirloom plant or something they saw that they instantly fell in love with!
I want to know what your favorite plant or flower is and WHY?!
