The Bees Knees

If you didn’t know my favourite room in my home is the garden. I have always been a crazy plant person. I rescued my flat mates peace lily that he wanted to throw out because all the flowers died. Prince Charles ( the peace lily) is about 7 years old now and sometimes I even get flowers. I have a hard time giving up on them.

My garden isn’t big but it’s a perfect for us. Two long beds, decking and a faux lawn ( which I hate). But the flowers trees and shrubs are really the bees knees!

Can you spot the bee?

I have been working in my garden every week since the snow ended. Chopping, clearing and sweeping away all the leaves. I have planted bulbs, sown seeds and propagated some trees. I still have some seed packets to see and I am closely monitoring my lobelia flowers but so far so good.

I thought that I needed more plants but I think I am okay. I have some clematis arriving this month that I will plant next to my other one. I am also tempted to plant a tomato hanging basket.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
