John, Alex and I just spent the last 3 days working on our front gardens. We're finally finished! I wish I had a "before" photo so that you could get the full effect. It looked TERRIBLE before! I haven't done anything with the gardens since we moved in a year and a half ago. On Sunday I was sitting outside and I don't know what came over me but I just went and got the shovel and got to work!
I guess I inspired John to get to work too because he had Monday and Tuesday off and he spent both days with me working away! We made 5 trips to Lowes to get all of the stuff. Alex had fun picking out flowers though. Most of the flowers that you see are ones that he picked out. :)
We planted blueberry bushes too!
These are John's favorites.
We put in the scalloped brick border and took out all of the gross wood mulch and replaced it with rubber mulch. It's really windy here and the rubber stuff won't blow away like the wood stuff.
I'm so glad that it's done and we're very excited that we have nice front gardens! It's our first garden so John and I are both pretty proud. :) We had NO idea that gardens were this much work!
