Good to Grow – Hand-Me-Downs

Hand me downs

Hand me downs

My favorite flowers are the ones that come with a story: I got these from Gramma’s Garden; these came from the lady who lived next door; these came from my best friend’s yard; those, I found along a roadside.

Everything in your yard doesn’t have to have a pedigree (though you want to be careful not to bring in invasive or hazardous plants). Patchwork quilts are special because the patches tell a story and so can your flowers.
