“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” —May Sarton
This Spring, I chose to step outside my comfort zone and plant wildflower seeds. I love the plants I have planted around my yard throughout the years; but I bought them established. I went out on a whim and decided to purchase wildflower seeds on Amazon. [here & here]
I planted them in the flower beds around my house. I included a mix of potting soil, organic egg shells and the seeds in a bucket, mixed it up and poured into the dirt. My flowers took a little longer to grow than I imagined, but once they did, they started popping up all over the place!
There are so many different varieties of flowers! And I love that!! It’s exciting to see what’s going to bloom next. This past week, I clipped some of my stems and brought them inside to make an arrangement.
Here is the arrangement I made with flowers from the garden
I am going to continue to enjoy these this season for as long as I can. But, I have decided next year, I will plant twice as much to enjoy! I love having fresh flowers in my home!
Thank you for stopping by!
