Birds Bees Butterflies Blooms ~ Do you love these as much as I do?
One of my favorite things to do is sit outside and watch the birds and butterflies dance from feeder to flowers. I originally only had one flower garden that has a mixture of flowers in it. I planted my first garden years ago and my only thought was to have pretty low maintenance flowers. This garden was planned and planted with for pollinators. But oh my goodness, I didn't expect it to take so long to dig the sod up. My back was killing me the next day.
My Thought Process :
- Dig all the sod up
- Put edging around the area
- Plant the seeds and/or flowers
- Add a lot of bags of mulch
- Finish up with some watering
Wow! What a project!
It looks like a crazy mess right now but wait until it all blooms. I planted hundreds of seeds. The Milkweed is thriving and the bees are loving it. Most of the green stems that are shown are Cosmos. I can't wait to see all the different shades of pink. I expect next summers to look even more colorful.
Just a few flowers that have bloomed so far
