Enter the $5,000 Yard Makeover at!

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

I mentioned in a previous post recently my total lack of a green thumb.  I’m completely lost when it comes to maintaining plants inside.  However, I’m not completely hopeless when planting outside.  I don’t consider myself a gardener – I really don’t have any knowledge about flowers and plants.  They’re beautiful and I love having them in my yard, but I definitely consider it a chore to plant. is a great resource for people who want to learn about planting bulbs.  They provide comprehensive information about planting and when to plant particular bulbs.  In addition, they have a “Family Fun” page that provides coloring sheets for kids as well as ideas other craft, fun ideas. has a page that introduces you to “The Ladies”.  These are three women who live different kinds of lives and have different ideas about planting.  I think I’m most like Marcy.  She has a hectic life, which I can completely relate to! 

Our yard looks pretty nice.  Nothing fancy, but we have beautiful flowering plants and my husband works his tail end off to keep the lawn green.  On Curbside Chaos, there are photos of people whose yards are in some serious need of help.  There is an awesome contest that actually ends tomorrow, April 15th, in which you can win a $5,000 yard makeover!  Imagine what you could do with that money!  All you need to do to enter is upload a photo of your yard.  In addition to the money, you could win a visit from Taniya Nayak (@TaniyaNayak on Twitter).  Taniya will give you advice about how to maintain your yard and give you tips on how you can utilize bulbs to beautify as well.

Each time you share this information on Twitter, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together, which is the nation’s leading nonprofit that is working hard to keep housing affordable for people and rebuild communities. also has the Garden Guru tool on the bottom of their main page.  You first select your zone in the US or Canada, then where you are located within that country.  You then choose which month you would like your bulbs to bloom.  The Garden Guru then suggests which bulbs you should plant. You choose which bulb you would like to plant and you are given planting instructions. It’s simple!
