Update: Beautifying a City Corner

At the end of June, I wrote a blog about planting Wildflowers in the greenspace in front of my city home. Now that it’s the beginning of August, I figured I’d share an update about how the seed is doing.

It’s looking gorgeous, even though we had a lot of rain when I first planted and almost no sunshine, which slowed down the bloom time a little bit. I hope you enjoy the before/after photos I’ve shared below. I will note that it’s been hard to take a good picture of the space; people walking by keep picking the flowers (which was one of the intentions of the project)! I’m thrilled to be brightening people’s days with Wildflowers.

After:

People are loving the colors of the Northeast Mix I planted:

Blue Cornflower

Wildflowers After

I’m thrilled with the results, mostly because I won’t ever have to plant again (the Regional Mixtures have Annuals and Perennials) and it cuts down on my mowing! I’ll be sure to post more pictures once the summer continues, as things keep blooming. Happy Gardening!
