One of my favorite parts of summer is having a garden! My Mom loves to garden, but I have my own little garden in our yard.
My garden is in a raised bed. This is a wooden frame filled with good soil. My mother built this for me a few years ago because my yard in this spot is mostly sand
This is what my garden looked like before I started working on it. I use the large flat rocks as stepping stones.
First I raked through it and loosened the dirt.
Then I planted the flowers. I bought two packs of a "butterfly mix" at a local store. These are flowers that supposedly attract butterflies. Most years I plant mostly vegetables, but this year I just planted flowers.
The flowers very quickly sprouted...
I can't wait for them to flower and I will definitely post when they do!
