How Does Your Garden Grow?

How Does Your Garden Grow?

 

Are you a "Gardening Aficionado" or a "Weekend Warrior"? I'm the latter. I do what I can, when I can and I rely on the professionals and experts with the rest. The weather in the Denver Metro area can still be unpredictable, even in May, so we typically wait until after Mother's Day to plant just about anything. That was a GREAT plan this year...we had SNOW on Mother's Day!

The temperatures are creeping back up gradually and the over night lows are fairly mild, so it might be "safe" to start planting this weekend! We like to do containter gardening with lots of flowers. Typically we'll have some geraniums, petunias and whatever else we might find that's colorful and easy to care for.

Soon will be visiting our local nurseries and home improvement stores to pick up out our "pretties". We like to visit Tagawa Gardens in Centennial, just a few miles from our home. The staff there is friendly and knowledgeable, and we always find what we need.

What does you garden look like? Do you have rose bushes or lilacs? Perhap you have window boxes, or raised gardens in your back yard. We all do what we enjoy and what looks nice in our landscaping. Some of us maintain the lawn, trees and the like ourselves, others hire a service. No matter. It all works, right?!
