As a college student, I don't spend too much time in one place. So I don't want to invest too much money in a garden I can't enjoy, when I am just going to pick up and move again in a couple months. For this reason, I can not wait until I have a house of my own and I can start creating the garden I have always wanted. So for now, I take what I can get for cheap if not free, so I don't have too much invested in them when I have to leave them behind. Working at a nursery, this comes easy luckily. I have acquired two Mammoth Sunflowers, a couple Sweet Pea vines, a Poppy flower and an Echinacea flower. And as you have seen, my grandparents have a garden of their own and little space to grow my findings, so I planted them at my boyfriends place. Which meant I could not give them the attention they deserved. This is what came out.
The sunflowers took a tumble earlier in the season from the wind. But they are troopers. They made it and bloomed!
