As if that wasn't enough to get your attention... Looky here, she's reversible!
Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary How does your garden grow? With silver bells & cockle shells And pretty maids all in a row
What the heck is a cockle shell? Dunno. What I do know is that I ordered some of my garden seeds from Burpee's online today!
As a military family, we have literally moved 10 times in 15 years. I enjoy gardening. I have had a garden at nearly all of our homes- some small & easy and some fairly large with tons of variety. However, the one thing that I have grown in every garden is sunflowers.
Sunflowers are my kind of flower! You throw 'em in the ground & cover 'em up with a little bit of dirt. Ya' water them if you remember too. If ya' feel like it, you sprinkle some fertilizer on 'em every now & then. But, either way, no matter how little or how much attention & TLC you give them... they are stunning!
What I can't believe is that I never took any pics of my gardens. What was I thinking?! Gonna have to do something about that this year. These are the seeds that I purchased.
We have approximately 1 acre of property. The front of our property has wooden privacy fencing & in the back we have chain link fencing which is surrounded by woods. In my opinion, the chain link fence is not very aesthetically plesasing, but we have a pool & need a fenced yard. If we had put up a wooden privacy fence, we'd block the view of the wooded area, so a chain link fencing is what we decided to settle for. Anyways... I'm thinking that I'll plant sunflowers all along the fence line to cover up that ugly ol' chain link fence. It's gonna be purty! I'll share pics with ya' along the way.
