Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Awaiting Spring

Do you long for warm weather? I count down the days to guessing if all the freeze possibility has past. My bulbs don't care though they bloom when they are ready and make me smile. Daffodils already bobbing their heads give me hope.

I'm a lover of flowers and live for Spring!

Getting ready on those unusually warm days can seem overwhelming and the urge to run out to the garden center and buy all those beautiful spring flowers before prepping is finished is hard to control. Trust me I have done the process in reverse and at times have lost plants while I'm preparing the beds.

So to organize plantings, start with a rake and some gloves with a trash bag in tow. Assess what made it through, what is likely to come back and then step back and plan. I like to mulch now, even though you can after you've planted. (your preference)Make a list of what you think you need along with starter solution and plant food. But don't buy more than you can do in one day.
