I certainly wouldn’t say that I have a green thumb, but over the last few years I have learned a lot about gardening through trial and error. Flowers have always been scary to me, so I like to stick with things that I know I can manage. Good old zinnias and sunflowers, and gladiolas are fool proof and about the only thing I have had success with until… drum roll please… last summer. I was determined to cover my garden fence in climbing flowers, and glory glory…Morning glories were my answer. I was able to grow the most beautiful morning glories, and they cover the entire side of my garden in their simple splendor. Beautiful winding stems, and amazingly vibrant colors all in-twined in my simple garden fence were not so difficult and SO worth the effort!
Our garden is in full swing and of all of the wonderful things that we are harvesting I think the flowers have got to be my favorite. I love having fresh flowers in our home, but buying them is never an option. For the few dollars I spent on seeds and bulbs this spring, I am now able to fill our home with colorful flowers that make our home bright and cheerful.
