Time to Share Your Gardens in April! CLOSED
This week @cesarj21 is the star of the show in the thumbnail with his amazing flowers!
With @riverflows on walkabout, and making us jealous with travel pics, I think we should return the favour and make her jealous with gardens pics and selfies! Yes, it's that time of the month again and we're excited to see what your gardens are doing as we head into April.
Here in Australia the days are getting cooler and I should really be planning our autumn/winter crops, as I also harvest some crops. The apples are nearly all in and I harvested a few sweet potatoes from a couple of cuttings I was given a few years ago now by @ligayagardener. They took a while to establish properly in my terrible soil, but they were worth the wait. Purple skin with white flesh, a change from the more commercially available orange ones.
I know the northern hemisphere is gearing up for the summer, so I'm sure everyone will have lots to share, but just in case you're stumped about what to write about or show us here are some ideas stolen from @riverflows' last challenge:
Draw/write a plan for your fantasy garden and explain what you'd like to create
Experiment for the first time with a gardening project eg growing bucket mushrooms
Share an instructional post from last year's gardening adventures
Share your friend or family's garden and interview them about it.
Or, of course, just share what you've been doing in your garden as the season has been changing.
