We have been blessed with beautiful flowers. We decided early on this spring that we would not spend a fortune on landscaping and the like. Who knew we would have more flowers than we needed? We carefully collected marigold seeds last year and planted those. I had a couple packets of seeds that came free in the mail. Last year's rose bloomed abundantly. Rene'e gave us about a dozen more flowers to plant. Amanda gave us a handful of flowers too AND a burning bush taboot. I did pick up a hanging basket at work for $15 and a flat of impatiens from a church fundraiser for $13. Keith treated the yard to rid us of dandilions for $8. He put in a new rose bush for $10 and a Red Lady bush for $30. All in all we spent less than $100 on the yard this year.
I also have one tomato plant and some herbs growing on the porch. SOMEDAY I may have a legitimate garden.
I am grateful to have these plants surrounding our home. They are beautiful and good for the environment. We are so blessed to have an abundance of flowers this year.
