So if you know me, then you know I absolutely love flowers and gardens. Recently, my youngest daughter and I went to Yunker Farm. It is where the Children’s Museum in Fargo is located. We haven’t been in a few years, so we took a little drive over and had a nice time there going through the museum. It was pretty much the same as we remembered it…. but, my favorite part was outside!. The gardens. Especially the Alphabet Garden. Flowers and herbs from A-Z! I was in heaven! 🙂
Here are a few photos. I definitely want to go again soon and take more!
So back in May I planted a bunch of different sunflower seeds that I had accumulated. I had some left over from last year, I bought a new pack of a different variety, and had a pack included in my collector’s club package from Jade Bloom.
I just wanted to post some progress pics. So far, they have not bloomed, but are very close! 🙂
The winter months are some of the best times to create plans for your garden and take steps towards improving it in time for the spring and summer. With that in mind, there are six excellent suggestions in this article that you might want to consider. These steps are guaranteed to make your garden more functional than it is at the moment, and they should encourage your entire family to spend more time outside when the weather improves. You should feel free to alter or tailor some of these ideas based on the size of your outdoor space and the requirements of your household. This post is just here to show you what’s possible.
Human beings possess something that almost no other animal on the planet has. We can recognise mood, shapes, colors and styles that trigger something within us. Since the dawn of man, life has been difficult, but as the modern age continues, nowadays we are insulated from what once was our natural habitat. With this wild life has become something that we watch on television and rarely have in our lives. And no, dogs and cats don’t count, think about the numerous creatures that harbor just in your back garden. They hide because they don’t really have a place to come to, relax and do what they usually get up to. If you would like a little wildness in your life, perhaps it’s time you gave these animals a place which you can both share and enjoy each other’s company. Don’t be daunted by this task and it’s wise to take small steps first, which makes the experience all the more fun; the kids can join in too.

Not every garden is inviting. And not every garden is easy to manage. But if you can spare a couple of hours this weekend, you might be able to achieve more than you thought. Our outdoor spaces are more integral to your home that you think. They’re ideal entertaining areas, and they offer some space for the kids to play and move around. If yours is screaming out for some TLC, here are your 5 options to beautify your garden:
Patio Clean Up
If you have a good quality power washer, you can bring any filthy patio slab back up to its former glory. The jets of water lift off the grime of all those past seasons. You can even wash down paths in this way. It can shift the odd weed if you know what you’re doing too. If your patio is cracked, broken and uneven, it might be worth investing in a new one. They don’t come cheap, but a new patio should give you years of good quality hard standing, perfect for a dining set.
