Summer has to be the best season. I love to play in the garden and watch things grow. I’m not such a fan of weeding, just ask my husband, but I do love a garden. I took some time last year and used a garden planner. Thanks to the Seed Saver Exchange website it was so easy. My uncle sent me the link last year and I took time this winter to do the work; knowing I’d want it ready for the spring.
I also love to get my kids into learning about all types of flowers and plants. Allowing them to build their own fairy gardens gave them a chance to smell lemon balm and mint while having a blast planting and getting messy. My daughter and her friends built their own fairy gardens on a gray Monday morning.
We asked each friend to bring their own pot. I was able to grab everything else from Home Depot, Michael’s Craft Stores or around the house.
They turned out so sweet and within a week they were full and smelling so good as all the plants and flowers filled out. I let my daughter take care of watering her own garden as she has such a sense of pride in it.
