Description from Featured Neighbor: Terri Parkin
This is a garden I planted in late spring. There is an array of colorful zinnias, a wonderful mix of cascade wildflowers, poppies, giant sunflowers, and nasturtiums. I brought in premium soil and had it spread for this garden which is the ultimate cause of its success this year plus consistent watering in the morning and evening. I planted just wildflowers last year, but the soil wasn’t as rich as this and so I had a much happier experience this year.
