I think Summer is finally here!!!!!
I spent the whole day outside..I even ate my lunch outside :)
I was tired of looking at my sad front flower bed, so I got to work on it today.
But not before I planted my bird bath, flower box and my 2 milk barrels.
I didn't know what to do with this flower bed.
I was thinking I should just rip everything out and start from scratch.
I asked people that were walking on the sidewalk for their opinion.
I asked a couple of my friends.
Most everyone told me not to rip everything out.
Then I sent a text to my friend, and expert in making a yard adorable, Debbie.
And her advice was what I really wanted to do.
Take the misc. plants out, pick through them, add fresh soil and add some annuals for colour :)
I have this small flower bed at the side of the house that I only have used for annuals and I have yet to plant any in here.
So I cleaned out the weeds...yes these are all weeds.
See, its all nice and clean now.
I added some fresh soil for more nutrients as well.
This flower bed is in direct sun all day, so the soil dries out, like a dessert.
Here are all the plants from my front flower bed.
Good thing I left the plant tag beside the plants or I wouldn't have found some of them, lol
Yes, it was really that bad in there.
My front flower bed gets shade most of the day, and I think most of these plants needed more sun, as they haven't grown much. Some you can't even see they are so tiny.
The tall ones at the back, I have no idea what they are. They were in my heart shaped flower bed. But we had to remove that one as Wayne wanted to widen the driveway for Ashley's jeep.
If you know what they are, I'd love to know.

Walk in my Garden pt 1....the heart flower bed that I am sad that I don't have anymore :(
I will hopefully finish my front flower bed tomorrow.
I hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)
