The Alphabet Garden

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! read more

Allowing Wildlife To Flourish In Your Garden

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.

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. read more
