Dig, Drop, Done Flower Bulbs Presents Curbside Chaos Contest!

This is a partnered post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every year I look forward to spring because once spring has sprung I get outside and work on my flower gardens. When it comes to planting flowers, often times I purchase flower bulbs because I can simply dig, drop and be done with my gardening in quick and simple fashion.

I found this really cool web site online called Dig, Drop, Done where you can learn all about flower gardens and flower bulbs. They have a great planting chart and bulb calendar which I found to be very informative on when I need to get busy planting up here in the North East. They also have these really cool videos that you can watch and I loved and identified with the one that featured Evelyn because I have this pesky groundhog that likes to tear up my garden and Evelyn gives you tips on how to keep pests out of your garden areas.

I then went and visited a web site called Curbside Chaos where you can find out more information about this fabulous contest they are holding right now. You can enter for a chance to win a $5,000 yard makeover and all you have to do is take a photo of your yard and submit it to them for a chance to win! How cool is that? Totally cool! Not only that, the lucky winner will win a visit from Taniyah Nayak (you can follow her on Twitter @TaniyahNayak and she will give you simple tips on how you can update your own yard! yeah! Every Twitter share gets $1.00 donated to "Rebuilding Together" which helps to preserve affordable home ownership.

I used their handy dandy garden guru tool and learned that I should plant my Daffodil Bulbs in early March so that they will bloom in May. I absolutely love Daffodils and they are my favorite spring flowers. I like to plant most of my flower bulbs outdoors but I do keep a few of them planted in big pots indoors in my sunroom area. I love looking at them every day...bright and cheery!

I love gardening and I am super excited that spring is only 6 weeks away and once it gets here, I will be ready to go with all of my flower garden planting!
