I grew up seeing my dad work in our flower beds each weekend pulling weeds and making everything look perfect. So naturally, when I bought a house...my goal was to have clean and colorful flower beds like my parents. Remember this adventure from last year? Things have come a long way and I actually enjoy landscaping more than I thought. It's awfully rewarding when it increases curb appeal!
This year I bought a few more evergreens (a couple of mine died over winter, it happens) and then I went crazy adding lime green ground cover, portulaca ground cover in pink, yellow, orange and white and begonias in pink, red and white . I am not really into yard ornaments but last year when I graduated college I was one proud graduate so my mom bought me a Sooners stone and I love it. Unfortunately the tree next to the stone died. Sad sad.
Ps: I will post more pictures later..but remember when the front yard was lacking grass? I planted sod and it is all filled in now...it looks sooooo much better! :)
