Memorial Day and Garden Goodness

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,
And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I hope everyone takes a minute to reflect this Memorial Day as we gather with our family and friends. I am truly grateful to the soldiers and their families that have served and died in for our country.

The gardener in me cries out "Let's get this party started!" every May when the evenings warm, and the soil is finally ready for me to sow seeds and plants again. We are revamping two areas this year, one as a Butterfly and Hummingbird garden in a hot, sunny area, and another into a Woodland garden in a shady, moist location.  I'm transplanting, sowing seeds and purchasing a few new plants as our budget allows.  I was doing research for myself and put together an article on creating a Butterfly and Hummingbird garden to share on OFL.  I think you'll like the frugal tips, and the advice on what annuals and perennials to use without breaking the budget. The article is here:
