Gardening comes in many shapes and sizes from the super elaborate outdoor garden maze that takes up acres of land and you can see from a helicopter to the simple succulent in a small pot on your windowsill. No matter what kind of gardener you are (or are striving to be), there are many resources available to help you complete this 62 Days square and Grow Green.

Picture this--the breeze is gentle, the air is warm, but not muggy, the sun gently setting so it is not quite dark but not quite light, out pops a yellow dot of light. It catches your eye and you then see it again, and another, and another.  The magical glow from hundreds of tiny fireflies light up your yard and you run to catch one, just to see if you can.  Fireflies are amazing little creatures and we have some great ways for you to explore more about them in this 62 Days square.
