Gardening 101

I’m trying to learn how to garden.

Last weekend, we bought a ton of new flowers including hydrangeas, pansies, impatiens, petunias, begonias, flox, and azaleas. There might be more that I’m forgetting about!

I began planting them in our front yard, by the house. I’ll call this step 1…out of probably 20 steps? Maybe more?

Planting the flowers was a bit harder than expected! I actually got my heartrate up digging those holes and broke a sweat LOL! We’ve had some heavy rains this week so I’m hoping my poor flowers don’t get drowned.

I have big plans for the yard, including building a stone patio area off of porch, and creating a rocky/stone area around our fire pit. I’d like to do as much of the work as possible ourselves.  Which is FUNNY because neither of us know much about building patios, planting, etc…. AND we have very little time on our hands. Needless to say, this is a long term goal. And as far as the short term, we’ll be lucky if I get the chance to finish planting the flowers I bought by the end of May.

I’ll keep updating as we go!
