Love for Flowers - Bonnie L.

Gardening of all types is in my blood!I love to have an vegetable garden but my favorite is my flowers. My love for flowers all year around is from my grandma. I live in CO and can't have year round flowers like I did in CA. Seeing the different types of flowers in my garden makes my heart bumble! My love for roses, lilacs, sweet peas to annuals of all type just full me with so much joy! Watching each flower develop is so much fun to view as the blooms open and the smells are overwelling! The delightment of planting a garden is beyond words because seeing this world with gardens of flowers is an exquistie feeling for me! I take time to stop, smell & look at what the Masters hand did for me!

About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"One of my favorite quotes is from Alice Morse Earle's book, A Taste for Gardens (1897). 'Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination. You are always living three, or indeed six, months hence.' For me, gardening is a lifelong hobby that can be enjoyed at any age. It connects me with the outside world--with the plants, birds, butterflies, insects and other creatures that inhabit my flower-filled acre. Gardening keeps me in tune wiith the weather, the seasons and the magical shapes of the ever-changing clouds. What's not to like?"
