Brian and I are so excited to have a yard, not to mention a new garden! We love Spring time because we get to spend more time outside cultivating our yard. What a blessing. My family has gardened since forever, so I wanted to continue to do the same. Also, there’s just something that stirs my affections for God by gardening and growing stuff. It’s so amazing and peaceful to me.

So, I researched how to build a raise garden bed and how to plan a garden we went to work. So far we’ve built a garden, planted a garden, planted gladiolas (bulbs), replaced dead oleanders with rose bushes, built a compost, and replaced the dead hanging potted plants with beautiful non-stop geraniums. Below are some photos of the process and the outcome. You can view all the photos here.
