My name is Erin Crough-Heaton and a as a requirement of the Middle Years Programme I had to complete the Personal Project. At the end of last year we were introduced to the project and the first stage (and in my opinion one of the hardest stages) was deciding on a project idea.
However, I soon decided that I was going to design and grow a flower garden. This idea came from my family and my love for nature and in particular plants. The fact that our front garden was quite dull and in well-need of a transformation was the perfect place to start.
My initial plan for the flower garden was to create a colour wheel design and I decided to stick with this design throughout the entire project. I also decided to take a risk and grow the flowers from seeds. Now that I am nearing the end of my project a lot of my flowers have started to bloom and all of the hard work that went into the project is finally starting to pay off. I think that this is one of the most important things that I have learnt as a result of this project. While at times it was frustrating, constantly having to care for the flowers, I think that as a whole it was worth the effort. Not only is this something that I will enjoy but also my family, and the rest of the community!
