Welcome to my first post of the year of the Blog All About It Challenge. This is the beginning of my second year participating.
What’s it all about?
Very simple! Each month I take the word prompt for that month and create a blog post of anything I want using that word. My personal goal for participating in this challenge is for you to learn a bit about me each month.
This month’s prompt is: BLOOMS
Last summer, I had the opportunity to walk through some of Ogden Botanical Gardens. The Utah State University students run this program as part of their studies and it is free for the public to walk through. There are acres of gardens there of all sorts from trees, bushes, vegetables, plants and flowers, but what they have in common is everything grown there can be grown outdoors in Utah.
Gardening is one of my past times so I was eager to walk the paths through the well-landscaped floral garden and see all the summer blooms. Many will grow where I live so I was able to recognize several and had grown a few of them myself. Though, the college kids had lovely garden design choices and had me snapping pictures and taking notes so I could plot out my flowering beds better.
Here are a few of the blooms I enjoyed seeing (and smelling):
