Beat #CurbsideChaos with Flowering Bulbs

Still, when I heard about Curbside Chaos, I wanted to see more.  With my health issues I haven't been able to work in the garden, and only something super-easy would be feasible.  The Curbside Chaos website has a fun Garden Guru tool.  You just choose your country, select your region, and choose when you'd like your flowers to bloom.  The tool will show you a few different flowers; click on one to find all the planting instructions you should need.

Even in winter, bulbs can be grown indoors.  I love the prepotted bulbs that bloom around Christmas!  My very favorite thing about bulbs is that I'm always in awe when they sprout from the soil.  All I did was bury something that resembled a rock, and look what beauty the Creator has instilled!

Look at the yard makeover that Curbside Chaos did for one lucky woman:

If I'd won the $5000 yard makeover ... wow ... I would enlarge the flower beds so I could plant more bulbs!  I'd plant more perennials:  at this time of year, mums come to mind.  I'd add some bulbs at the base of the mailbox post.  And, if possible, I'd get an irrigation system for the front lawn, to keep everything green.  All of this would be low-maintenance, which is just what I need.

For more planting information, visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more.  I like the characters they've created, each one with different needs.  I can relate to Marcy, the busy mom who is looking for the easiest way to add color to her life!

Oh, one more cool thing!  For every share with the hashtag #CurbsideChaos, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together to revitalize communities and preserve affordable homeownership.
