For the past few years, I've been struggling with creating a wildflower garden. I had a vision of what I wanted my wildflower garden to look like, but no matter how hard I tried, the plants would not grow, and the weeds always won. Considering I have a natural green thumb, I was feeling defeated as my vision of the perfect wildflower garden turned into an imperfect weed garden. I was about ready to give up last fall until I stumbled across an unusual seed blend that gave me hope. And this year, I finally have a wildflower garden that doesn't look like a weed patch. So far Crimson Clover, Cornflowers, and Siberian Wallflowers have popped up with a few Dandelions and Goldenrod. As the year goes on, other plants will start to pop up (15 in all - including some grasses). It's not your traditional wildflower seed mix, as I needed the option to mow it a couple of times a year. But I thought I would share it with you, in case you are thinking of wanting to try something new this fall in prep for next year (Organic Hayflower Medicinal Pastures Mix).
As I pulled weeds around the house this past weekend and looked at my wildflower garden, I realized that my wildflower garden has taught me a lot over the past several years. It was teaching me the Wabi-Sabi style of gardening...
The art of imperfect gardening!
Below is a short-video recording of the Crimson Clover singing in the garden. And if you are interested in learning new techniques to connect deeper with nature, check out my upcoming workshop (details below).
