Before this I had never grown my own flowers before. I had only planted them already grown into pots. I've learned a lot about flowers along the way, to say the least. From different varieties, to what's easier to grow, what's harder, when the blooming season is for various kinds of flowers. I've kind of become a flower gardener...and I kind of enjoy it.
I wanted to share a quick Before/After of some of the flowers I've grown, because I couldn't believe how tiny these things were looking back.
Remember the Dusty Miller I picked up in little containers and planted into pots? This is what some of these guys looked like when I first planted them:
So little, right? Well, here's what they look like now:
Yes, that yellow pot is the same one from above! So crazy. I'm going to have a lot of accent leaves for my centerpieces. :)
And those Zinnias that are growing out back in the garden have taken off like crazy. Here's a few pictures of what they've been looking like in the last week or so:
And this is where I started:
Little styrofoam cups with seeds! Now my only hope is that they stay blooming and beautiful until the wedding! Of course, I don't have as many varieties of flowers planted as I had hoped, but that's where the florist comes in. We can still make our arrangements and use some of our own flowers, but also get plenty of stems to fill all of my vases.
Excited to meet again tonight and get all of our plans for the flowers confirmed. Every step of the wedding done is a good one! More to come...
