Spring is in the air and I love it. I love the sunshine, the flowers, longer days, less layers to put on and trees starting to bloom. I am pretty sure I’m not the only one feeling this way. So why not lend nature a helping hand to encourage these happy spring feelings?

Yesterday I went out to plant flowers. I selected a variety of seeds that should be planted this time of year and that wouldn’t need much care to grow. Oh, did I mention that I planted them in the public space? I found the perfect green patch for it (if you receive this via email, click here to watch the video). It’s a busy bicycle lane with water on one side and trees on the other (and well, a fence and industrial area just behind those trees).

Hopefully in a couple of weeks people will be able to enjoy the flowers when they bike to and from their work, school and meetings.

Have you been able to enjoy spring yet where you live?

    Hello again name-friend :). Spring has started where I live and it is beautiful! I think someone must have done some guerrilla gardening with daffodil bulbs, because there are daffodils popping up all over on the sides of the streets, suspiciously in perfect little rows! It is such a sweet idea.

    There’s still snow on the ground in my neighborhood, but I’m dreaming of guerrilla gardening now :) Thanks for the inspiration!

    Ahhh, I wanna do this, too! I have some leftover butterfly garden seeds from last year, and I think they’d do great for something like this. When we planted them last year, we hardly took care of them at all and they grew so healthy and vibrant, even in such tall grass and amongst weeds! The only thing is, you’d want to make sure you don’t plant the seeds in a place that’ll be mowed over regularly, because then they’ll just end up getting chopped down before they have a chance to bloom!

      Half om mine were said to attract butterflies too! :D And yes, I thought a little late about this. I think the grass there gets mowed sometimes, but I also think I might have included planting some seeds in placed that are less often taken care of. We’ll see ;)

    This is such a lovely idea, I think somebody must’ve accidentally done some guerilla gardening as the embankments on my train line have several patches of daffodils that must’ve been thrown there, I’m off to find some seed packets of my own now
