Garden: Waiting For Spring

Do you ever plant your seeds or bulbs, and rose bushes, in spring, only to spend the next few weeks going out to check how many millimeters they've grown since the last time you checked - 2 hours ago? LOL I do, and am right now! The hardest part of spring for me is waiting for things to come up and bloom!


So I came up with a solution! Silk flowers! I went to the Dollar store today and spent $13 on silk flowers. When I got home I cut each flower off the "base," then I took all the flowers and stuck them all around my gardens where I have bulbs planted. I also got some silk roses and stuck them among my real rose bushes.

Now I have flowers to enjoy NOW until my real ones come up and bloom! Once they do I'll take up all the silk ones and wash them off and keep till next year!

My bulbs are starting to come up good now, so I'm slowly thinning out the silk flowers and moving them to other places around the yard. Like at the base of my clothesline poles. Really perks that area up!

A very good friend of mine has been doing this for years, and I never knew it until she confessed after I gushed and gushed about her beautiful year-long garden! It really floored me, but I really admire her creativity!
