I'm THIS CLOSE to finishing another card (I know!!) .... but it's been soooo nice out so I've been spending most of my free time planting & digging & yanking & swearing a lot. Here is what I've been up to...
This is what our front "garden" looked like before I started using that funny looking tool there.
After edging, adding soil & compost, planting & mulching, this is what it looks like now:
And may I add, I did every stinkin' bit of it myself! There were no husbands or sons involved in the making of this garden. I have added a few more bits here & there since taking this photo ... a few more flowers & decor. I just love it :)
This weekend I worked on the nasty pain-in-the-tail random looking shrub that has blocked our front porch since we moved in here:
And now ....
I planted a Butterfly Bush in its place. I won't tell you how I'm feeling today after getting that beast (& apparently it had children) out of the ground! * ouch * #gettingtoooldforthis
Osteospermum (fancy word for daisy)
Peony about to open
A peony that IS open. In my yard, the white ones bloom before the pink ones LOL
I'm usually not a fan of geraniums but I love this striped one.
I will have tons more flowers to show you as the season goes on. Lots to do in my yard & all my plans include new gardens. Out with the old & in with the new!
