Flowers, flowers, everywhere!! But not in my front yard. Yet.
Okay, so I totally stole that line and reinvented it from Willy Wonka (the original movie, with Gene Wilder, not the creepy one with Johnny Depp), but it fits.
My front yard has been cause for a concern for the three years my hubby and I have lived here. Partly because I have the polar opposite of a green thumb and kill all plants, partly because the last time I tried to do any yard work I ended up in the Emergency Room. Literally.
And believe me...it was not the kind of ER with the hot sexy doctors and nurses.
But I'm venturing into uncharted territory tomorrow afternoon, and I'm taking on not only mowing the yard with a steep hill that might just kill me, but I'm removing a decaying stump, de-weeding the flower bed, and planting different types of flowers in my yard. I'm a little nervous that I'm going to have weeds take over the flowers, but hey, it's my first year attempting gardening of any sort. It'll be a miracle if anything blooms. Lol!
So I thought I'd post a pic of the flowers I plan to plant. If I can come back to the post during the daytime, I'll try and post the before and after pics, especially after the new flowers bloom. I don't know what's going to happen, but I figured I'd give it a go! Here are pics of what the flowers SHOULD look like when they bloom:
How pretty are they?! Hehe, let's hope my thumb turns green before I tackle these, because I REALLY wanna have a beautiful yard for once!
