wildlife!

i understand,
for whoever knows a lot about gardening,
that i am making this post a bit late, but for me it's never too late to plant things!
the garden outside my apartment wasn't the best perserved i've seen,
so i decided to spruce it up. so i brought out my blue, polka dot gloves, and water...
here are some of the plants i chose and you could use even now and why:

when you plant them, if you have a lot of birds in the neighborhood,
stick a few thin twigs around your planted areas so they won't be able to sit there
and eat your seeds. (they did that with mine the first time :P )
also,
i planted some seeds (grapefruit) in order to grow a little tree.
if you leave it in a small pot it will turn out like a bonsai! plus, it's always good for the environment to plant a tree.

what flowers do you like? do you ever bother planting things?

xoxo have a lovely weekend!

I love gardening but someone don't have a green thumb. The twig trick is a great idea. Will try planting something again and see how it works out. :)

Tee hee, I love gardening and its the thing I mis most about living in Athens and not having a garden - it's not the same as having a balcony!

Love sweetpeas, peonies and all sorts - anything that brings colour into my life is wonderful!

Have a great weekend koukla!

I'm not an expert on planting, that's why I picked easy plants :P I hope my tips will be helpful1
