appy National Gardening Day, a day that I am excited to celebrate! If this is the year you plan to start a garden it’s a great time to do it!


Words of Wisdom on Gardening (from me)


  • Check on your garden every day (morning if you can) to see what has grown, what might need water, or tackle pest problems before they worsen.
  • Remember even seasoned gardeners kill things – and sometimes it’s not really our fault, it can be bad luck or the plant could be sick.
  • Select a color palette for your garden and stick to it! Mine is white, purple and pinks with touches of yellow.
  • Remember gardening is also a work out so though the cost can be high (like $200 for plants?) you are spending a day in the sun maybe listening to an audiobook, or in your own thoughts and exercising your body!
  • In fall we are planning and prepping our gardens for a spring bloom. We are always preparing for the season ahead!
