April A-Z Challenge: Gardening

This year, we have big plans for our garden! We're going to be planting thirteen new trees, three Rose of Sharon bushes, and one Heritage Everbearing Raspberry Bush. We're also planning on planting wildflowers to make our garden more bee-, butterfly-, and pollinator-friendly.

Our 2015 Garden Renovation plans also include painting a second-hand bench we found on a street corner on garbage collection day a few years back, decorating several birdhouses, making a DIY bird feeder, and painting and decorating an old table we found at a garage sale last summer. We might also be getting new Gazebo curtains and a brand-new outdoor tablecloth. And you never know what we're going to find at yard sales this summer, so keep an eye out for updates on this blog if you want to know what Kaija's Garden Oasis is going to look like by the time the season's over.


  1. My kids love DIY projects. Its spring break so they're doing stuff for the back yard this week.

    1. I just love this time of year when everything is starting to bloom and the weather is finally warm enough to get out and do fun projects in the garden. I hope your kids have as much fun with their DIY projects as I did with mine!
