I recently had a pet (black lab named Kayla) pass away and we have laid her to rest in our backyard under her dog house. There is a small area beside her that we would like to turn into a small flower garden but I would like to plant a mix of things so that something is always blooming during every season. I live in Gastonia, NC (near Charlotte, NC if that helps any!) and have never seriously done the gardening thing, except for a few transplants that my grandmother did for me. Any help that could help me turn this space into a constantly blooming tribute to a beloved pet would be very much appreciated!
