Our Little Flower Garden

Introduction: Our Little Flower Garden

About: I'm just a lady who likes making stuff. I got my degree in engineering but also enjoy cooking, sewing, knitting, gardening and backpacking, among other things.

When my family moved to our current house, it was a very stressful situation.  It was a rushed move and my mom was in the middle of a year of chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.  The house we moved into was not exactly our dream house and had no plants or garden to speak of.  There was this weird rectangular bed of dirt in the middle of the front patio with a big stump in the middle of it and we didn't really know what to do with it.  Well, my mom started planting seeds and plants that people brought her,the rest of the family started pitching in, and soon enough that weird rectangular bed of dirt was transformed into our beautiful flower garden.
Now, we have hummingbird feeders hanging up, a table and chairs and a futon and the flowers look like this!  It's one of my favorite places to be.

    I clicked on this because I was checking out the contest entries, and saw "Our Little Flower Garden" by "Danger is my middle name" and i loved the irony : )..

    Nice photos, and I like the story of how your garden came to be.

    Just because I like living on the edge doesn't mean I can't get a little gardening in every once in a while! haha

    And thank you for the compliment.
