Folksy Friday - Gardening Made Easy...

Now, I am not famed for my green fingers... Unfortunately we do not have a very big or inspiring garden, but I do like to at least try to grow things!  This week the Amaryllis bulb I was given at Christmas has sprung into life in a major way, I have acquired a new succulent for my desk (trying to break away from my only successes to date - money plants), the fiscus I bought for the lounge is still hanging on in there (known to be fussy little blighters) and I have noticed some very brave daffodils nosing their way out of the soil in the front garden.  So really, for me, things are positively blooming!!

It may be a little early to think that spring has truly sprung yet, but I am certainly getting the verdant vibe to chase away the post festive season mid-winter blues; so I was inspired to look at all things plant and gardening related on Folksy this week.  Yes there are items for real true gardeners, but also for us armchair wannabe's, as well as a couple of pieces for those who just want to celebrate the growing season... I hope there is something for everyone!

(As usual, click on the name below each picture to fly over to Folksy and find out more about each item.)
