Restoring My Neglected Flower Beds

As part of my Goals and Challenges for 2017 I wanted to get the flower beds back into shape. Sadly a lot of the perennials I had planted were mistakenly uprooted when Mr. Comfortable “weeded” for me a couple of years ago. Other plants just came to the end of their lives. Now it’s time for me to begin restoring my neglected flower beds. I hope you can use some of the tricks I’m using to help your flower gardens!

I'm a wife, mom, and grandma who loves cooking, baking, gardening, and all things that go into making a cozy coop for my brood. Although I'm disabled I try not to let it get in the way of what I love doing.

  1. Ouch, nasty sprain! Who knew gardening was so dangerous? You look like you have your work cut out for you! While I think flowers are lovely, I’m much too lazy and uninterested in gardening to care for any. The only reason we have a vegetable garden is that my husband is the one who takes care of everything. I did have potted wildflowers a couple of summers ago when I sowed a packet of seeds my grandma bought for me. It was lovely to see them (and on the plus side, they didn’t require any maintenance at all, really).

    1. I’ve been ordered by Mr. C & Pete to stay in bed with my foot elevated today. So naturally I’m at my computer with my foot hanging down! LOL I love the vegetable garden because I know what we’re eating. In these days of GMO’s I hate buying produce! But I may have bitten off more than I can chew trying to do the flower beds and the vegetables. Time will tell.

  2. Good luck with the flower beds (or should I wish Mr. Comfortable and Pete good luck?)! 🙂 I may have to look into some of those plants; we have a lot of trees, so we need shade plants if we’re going to have plants around out house, haha. Our daffodils are the same way; we haven’t separated them in many years.

    Yikes, yeah, who knew they could be dangerous? o_O Purple is my favorite color, but I bet your foot wishes it wasn’t purple right now. And twice as big, wow! That sounds painful.

    Buffalo Chicken Pizza?! That sounds lovely! 😍

    1. I’m going to at least supervise out there. I need more shade plants for the front. Long house and not enough landscape. The hill is in full sun so that’s easy.
      Pete came over again and made us dinner. That kid is one sweet man!
      I like purple but now things are greenish yellow. Ick.

      1. Supervising is a good idea! 🙂

        Oh, that’s nice! Yes, it seems to be easier to find plants for full sun than shade. Good luck with your plants! 🙂

        Awww, that is so nice of him! He is sweet indeed!

        I tried to find a bright side to that one, but… eww. 😄 I hope it looks normal again soon!
