Some Spring Blooms for a Monday!

I’m not the best gardener in the world. In fact, I often accidentally kill all flowers that I plant. This year I’ve been trying really hard to keep my garden alive for more than a week. Here’s my progress so far!

This is what the garden started out looking like. Last year Kurt put in the walk way and dug out two huge bushes at the side of the house and made a little garden for me.

My mom gave me that lantern last year as well and Kurt’s dad found us the outside chair. Someone was throwing it away and it was in like perfect condition so he picked it up and gave it to us. Looks pretty good (I think at least! haha)

I think so far I’ve only accidentally killed one plant!

I love Dahlia’s! I planted these yellow ones and some purple which are just starting to blossom now!

I also LOVE lilacs! They’re usually the first flowers that start blossoming in my garden and as soon as I see the buds forming I instantly get excited! The dark purple are my favourite!

Ever since I was a kid my mom always had at least one bleeding heart plant so when we bought this house four years ago and I discovered there were two bleeding heart plants I was over the moon excited. They’re just so cute and bring me right back to my childhood every time I look at them!

 I love these little flowers! So teeny tiny and cute!

Well, that’s my garden so far! Hopefully they’ll all last and I’ll be able to share more pics as they blossom!
