The Ultimate Guide to Spring Garden Ideas
Ladies and gentleman it's here....Spring. We finally had our first Spring rain...the Elm trees have buds and even my Irises are blooming a few weeks early this year.
It all means Spring has arrived. Now whether or not you've had the chance to get in your gardens yet you can still browse for some great new ideas to try.
I don't know if I've shared with you before but we live on a flower/vegetable farm. For garden ideas to catch my eye .....they really have to be out of the box ideas.
The reason why ...... is because I look at garden ideas all day. I'm always looking for something that gives you a good bang for the buck and the older I get.... something that is easy.... and a good conversation piece.
Our Saturday linky party was full of really clever and fairly simple ideas that can really help you make your garden sparkle.
