Nothing makes a home look complete quite like a well-landscaped yard and well-cared for flower garden. If you’re a flower garden lover like me then you know that a yard without flowers is like peanut butter without jelly – something is missing! I love being in the out of doors. In my mind, nothing is better than lounging on my porch during the summertime while sipping a glass of ice tea and admiring all of the flowers that I have planted showing off in full bloom.
Gardening is a Way to Get Back to the Basics
It is a way to take a break from work, chores and the general busy-ness of life. To use your own two hands and the miracles of nature to grow something that is beautiful, fragile and fragrant. Serious gardeners may belong to a garden club, but they can’t be there anytime that you have a question or when you have a wonderful story to share. That’s where this site comes in! You can stop by anytime day or night to get advice, look for tips on the newest gardening and landscaping ideas or just do a little reading (or writing!) about one of your favorite topics.
Why I Created This Website
My love for flowers and the realization that there was not a site that included all the information that I wanted are the reasons why I decided to start this site. Gardening is one of my passions, and I wanted to create a site where I could not only share my own passion but where I could hear from other like-minded gardeners as well.
I wanted to create a place where flower garden lovers from all over could come to learn, share and get ideas. Who doesn’t love to learn new ideas that can be used in their garden? Are any of us immune from the occasional stubborn disease or pest problem? Wouldn’t it be great if there were a site where you could go and read stories from others who may have had the same problem? Well, here it is!
