If you follow me on instagram you may have noticed my new obsession with flowers and arranging them. This isn't the cheapest hobby so as soon as I started getting into it Dustin has been pushing me to plant a flower garden. We made a veggie garden last year, which he has essentially taken over because my schedule is so busy it is hard for me to get outside.
Well, this past weekend I decided it was time to go for it so I spent the weekend outside clearing the space and laying out rocks to form a little U shape bed around our cherry tree. My sweet and crazy strong little brother David came by to help me dig the holes for all the flowers and shrubs, thanks Dave!
Dustin installed an irrigation system in the veggie garden while I was working on the flowers this weekend and last night he brought it over to the flower garden. It is amazing to wake up in the morning and already have everything getting water! I didn't really help much with this, but he made it look pretty easy!
I planted mostly perennials with just a few annuals and a couple of shrubs because I love how branches look in arrangments. I really want things to boom more and more each year. Here is a photo of the first arrangement I made entirely from the garden. My mom is a pretty amazing vegetable gardener so I have been around this stuff for a long time, but I've never really given it the attention it deserves. I love how it gets me outside since most of my hobbies are indoor hobbies. Do you have a garden? What is your favorite thing to grow?
