You Grow Girl

I was at Menards the other day getting gardening supplies and window shopping,looking at all the goodies I would love to put in my yard. I came across a book called "You Grow Girl" by Gayla Trail, for $6.00. I figured I can't go wrong at that price. It has everything from planning to planting to cute little projects. The projects are marked from "easy peasy" to "get down and dirty". It is a handy little book, since my gardening expertise is at a minumum. I am fortunate to have two neighbors who help me out. Both have beautiful yards. One looks like an English garden, the other is more formal. Myself, I am kinda in between. I like both, so mine is a mixture. My plan this Spring is to landscape the side yard and have a patio poured in the back yard. I was given free patio furniture and it needs a place to sit. So I am taking advantage of the beautiful weather we have been enjoying the last several days, and digging in the dirt.....

So, how does your garden grow....


  1. Oh, good luck! I don't have much of a green thumb but my husband does! I help out where I can. And I'm good at directing!
    All your plans sound wonderful! Post some pictures if you get a chance!
    All the best,
    PS ~ 'Love the look of your blog!

  2. Sandy we had a snow storm Thursday night and it has been cold and windy every since, it will be a few weeks before I will even think of planting flowers, so happy you are able to enjoy Spring weather.....your yard sounds really nice, hope you show us some pictures.

  3. I can't wait to see pictures of your project. I too landscaped this weekend.
    By the way, I love the new blog look! ;)

  4. I absolutely love getting on my knees and getting my hands into the dirt! I haven't gotten to do it as much as I'd like lately. But, I'm pretty scattered with no specific look. ~Mindy
