I love Spring! I am just not a “winter person.” So as soon as the temperatures begin to rise and the flowers begin to bloom, it’s like I feel myself again. In celebration, I have joined up with some blogging friends to bring you a Spring “Goodies” Giveaway of some of our Favorite Things!
One of my favorite things to do in Spring is to start my garden for the year. Mostly we focus on our vegetable garden, but planting flowers for the year is something we are trying to do more of. My girls love picking flowers. What little girl doesn’t? So planting flowers all around the yard is a fun thing for us to do together while looking forward to picking pretty flowers for the house later.
We are currently updating our raised beds and plan to add an area just for flowers!
To help you create your own flower garden, I have a gift pack for one lucky reader to win!
Included in the giveaway are a Miss Fancy Plants gardening apron, an ergonomic handled trowel, four seed packets for beautiful colorful flowers, and …… a bee habitat.
I think the gardening apron, trowel and seed packets are pretty self explanatory, but let me explain why I picked a bee habitat for you. The more Hubs and I have gardened, the more appreciate the work of bees in our garden. (Actually Hubs would love to have our own hive, but we can’t where we live now) What we can do to encourage a healthy population of pollinators is to hang a bee habitat nearby.
Don’t worry — there won’t be any swarms! And it’s true, you leave them alone and they will leave you alone. But what you DO get are healthy pollinated plants for your vegetable and flower garden which equals more blooms! And more blooms means more veggies and more lovely flowers.
After you enter this giveaway, be sure to hop on over to my friends pages to enter their Favorite Things Giveaways. There’s some really good stuff!
