for years, i’ve only planted vegetables and herbs. there was a direct payoff for all my hard work- food! it wasn’t until about a year ago i realized how much i enjoyed having flowers in my yard. freshly cut flowers bring me so much joy as they brighten my home and fill it fragrance. arranging a bouquet of flowers is relaxing and peaceful. so, i’m excited to share with you that i have just planted my first ever flower garden!
