The warm weather. Being able to go outside and feel the sun’s warm rays on your face. Hearing birds chirping. Watching things come back to life after a long winter’s nap. It really is intoxicating, especially after the brutal winter we had here in the Northeast.
My daughter and I wanted to celebrate Spring by doing something fun together outside. We settled on planting and growing a garden, but not your typical, run-of-the-mill flower or plant one. With the help of the folks at Spangler Candy Company, the makers of Dum Dums, we were able to create our very own one-of-a-kind lollipop garden! Talk about bringing a little sweetness to the arrival of Spring!
Creating our lollipop garden was super simple – and in just a few steps. Even those of us (meaning me!) who don’t necessarily have a Green Thumb can plant their very own lollipop garden and have amazing results literally overnight. The secret is all in the magic jelly beans – the more colorful, the more vibrant and yummy your lollipop garden will be.
After finding the right kind of planter – we went with a bright red rectangular tabletop one – my daughter got to work on planting her garden. She was very methodical in laying it out. She took great pains (and time!) to vary the colors of her magic jelly beans and spaced them out carefully, so the soon to be lollipops wouldn’t crowd each other out. Before she was done, she said a little Spring cheer and then left her garden to do its magic overnight.
