For real this time: We’re growing our own flowers

Apologies if anybody thought the last post was real concerning our “knitted wedding” — we’re not actually doing that.

However, what we’re really doing is going to plant all our own flowers. Back when I was in junior high in Merced, CA, I used to do this with great enthusiasm. I planted hundreds of bulbs around our house and just about all of them came up and it looked gorgeous! I planted crocus, hyacinths, blue grape hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, and gladiolus.

We figured that not only would it be a money saver, but it would also be a lot of fun to do. We’ve already bought most of the seeds and bulbs for the flowers we’re going to use.

This morning I called into 1360 AM in San Diego to talk to Bruce Asakawa on the “Garden Compass” morning show. Him and his co-hosts provided some helpful advice. We’re thinking of having those super blue, bearded irises as one of the main flowers as our colour theme is bright blue and brown. We’ll also be growing plenty of white flowers such as white alyssum and baby’s breath and a few other nice-looking flowers and bulbs.

I’ll be posting some pictures soon of what we bought, and I also hope to keep you all updated on the progress of the flowers, complete with pictures!

There are 125 days left till our wedding! Much joy!
