I love to bring a dear friend flowers. It is such a lovely gesture, but it can also be pricey. Last year I planted Daisies and Zinnias in our raised beds in my back yard. I spent less than $10 on the seed packets and made at least 20 bouquets from the flowers those seeds produced! It was so fun to give them away on birthdays or deliver a mason jar full of flowers to a friend having a bad week. This year I added a few more varieties to spice up my bouquets like Cosmos and Mexican Sunflowers. I planted all my seeds yesterday and I expect to have flowers to cut by July. My Zinnias from last year were so beautiful and beyond weeding and watering, are low maintenance. My backyard garden is truly one of my favorite things.
