I love flowers. Wildflowers, sunflowers, all flowers.
So this year I wanted to grow my own flowers, which meant I had a lot of work to do.
Our backyard is pretty big. So we decided the corners would make good flowerbeds. That way the boys would still have plenty of room to play and I wouldn't have to worry about them killing the flowers.
See all that grass in the corner. That's the area I had to clean out for the first flower bed. Let me tell you, that was not an easy job!
But I did it!
I cleaned it out and prepped the dirt for the flower seeds. I have sunflowers, and wildflowers. The sunflowers are different colors. The traditional yellow and a hybrid maroon color. Someone told me they have sunflowers that smell like chocolate! Flowers that smell like chocolate! I need to find me some of those!
