The other day my husband suggested that I plant a flower garden in the front of our house. We have a little flower bed by the front porch, but we hadn’t done anything with it since we’ve moved in. I thought, why not? I’m always up for something new! And the outdoor flower shop was having a half off sale, perfect!
Now, let me just start off and say, I don’t know anything about planting flowers or what types of flowers are good to plant, how much water they need, sunlight exposure, etc.
I get to the flower shop, grab my cart and start going up and down the aisles, trying not to look completely clueless.
There were some super cute flowers! And then some not so cute lol. I chose ones that I thought would look good in the front of our house. I didn’t go all matchy – matchy though, which is fine and totally in style right now!
(Whoever gets to name these flowers has a fun job!)
After walking around for awhile and finally picking up a few flowers, I went to the check out and was on my merry way.
I had to make a Target stop to get a hand shovel, since we didn’t have one.
First, I had to get the weeds out of the flower bed. I don’t know a weed from a plant that’s supposed to be there, so I ended up digging out most of the plants. But, I’m pretty sure I left behind a few weeds…
Planting those flowers took way longer to do than I expected! I had to dig the dirt up (obviously) and then figure out how to get the stinkin flower out of the plastic tub thing it came in (which was the most difficult part). I was trying not to tear the flowers apart while trying to get them out of the plastic. Then came the easy part once I finally managed to get the flower out. I just put the flower in the hole I dug up and filled it back in with dirt.
I think for my 1st time planting flowers, it turned out pretty cute!
Now, it’s time for a well deserved manicure!
