We were out the other day because one of us needed a prescription refill. (Hey, that’s the major reasor we go out these days.) Anyway, as we were walking around Wal-Mart a flash of color hit our eyes. We were walking by the flower seeds display.
I am the first to admit that my thumb is about as green as a robin’s red breast, but I still like seeing splashes of color in our yard during the summer. We already had some packets of seeds at home, but a few more would not hurt. Anyhow, we wound up buying a few more packets.
My garden planning is not very scientific. I put seeds in the ground and keep my fingers crossed that they will take off and grow. I will say that for 30 years this process has worked for me.
I do like to make sure that I plant the taller growing flowers in the back and gradually reduce the height as I get to the front. Because of my expert gardening skills I am always amazed by which flowers put in an appearance. Even with this haphazard growing system, I always end up with a colorful patch in my front yard.
