I was looking at the back of my seeds packet the other day, and it looks as though I can start my garden. Each year I come up with a different technique to try and make sure all of my seedlings yield as much produce as possible. As many of us do, I start them in an individual pod, and then I have them make friends with one another once they start to blossom. Just like in life, the other plants help each other grow and blossom into something bigger and better. It is all about nurturing in nature.
Growing up some of my fondest memories of visiting my grandparents was the garden they had. My Pop-Pop always had corn, different color beans, tomatoes, and much more. He also grew flowers and herbs that kept the air smelling nice and sweet. Because of him I started my own small vegetable and herb garden in the backyard, and this year I have attempted to grow a peony bush just like the one he had in his garden.
It is September 4th which means it is National Wildlife Day! This day is supposed to bring attention to different species in your area, and the rest of the world. So, I thought in honor of National Wildlife Day some of us from the Parish Giving team would tell our readers about our favorite wild species and why! Hope you enjoy!

April showers bring May flowers. It’s that time of the year where our gardens are getting planted and flowers are beginning to bloom.
