I am super excited about the warmer weather:-D I love spending time outside soaking in the warmth. I am literally miserable during fall and winter!
Anyways, the main reason I love it is because of the flowers. Last year I decided to plant a flower bed:) I managed to keep my flowers alive but I didn't research before I planted them so some of my smaller flowers got covered with the bigger plants:( but I am not giving up! I will be planting another flower bed this yr and hopefully I get it right this time:)
Do you have a flower bed? What flowers do you plant and which is your favorite? Any gardening tips welcomed and so are pictures!:-P

I love pansies! They have such a beautiful variety of color! I just love when they bloom in colors I wasn't expecting!

Yay:-P I am surprised my flower bed survived last year. Before then I had only house plants that I could not keep alive no matter how hard I tried lol my dh always picked on me about it.

Yes! I've already started. I live in Florida :) my favorites are roses, hibiscus, daisy, dahlia, and one other but I can't remember the name :( and I do a big garden. This year I have 365 plants. Half are planted and I will finish the rest this weekend. I love growing our own food!

I don't plant a flower bed, but I plant a container garden on my porch and grow all sorts of fruits and veggies and herbs. This year I want the garden to be REALLY big. I have a huge front porch, and I love being outside in the heat, growing things for my family to munch on. My son spent his first summer in a jumper on the back patio of our last house, and the first solids he was exposed to included things from my garden. He loved being out there as a baby pulling at the plants and I'd rub fresh mint or basil on his binky and he LOVED the flavors.

Lol my grandma gave me a plant one time(house plant) and told me it was nearly impossible to kill...well I killed it! So I am no expert but I am determined:-P

I plant around the front of the house and it looks so cute. I usually plant tulips and daisys. Daisy bushes grow huge over time. We also have a garden on the side of the house and fruit trees filling a gap between our house and a neighbors.
