Garden . State

One of my favorite things about the street that we've moved onto is the way that people keep their yards. Many of the houses near us have front yards that have been turned into gardens -- they're filled to the brim with all sorts of pretty flowering perennials.



We've just dug up a rather mangy hedgerow in our own front yard, and planted a few perennials in its place: daisies, donkeytail spurge, moss thyme, bees balm, purple butterfly bush...I'm off to find a few more today!! Of course, it won't be until next summer that our plants are a bit more lush, but it's something to look forward to!!

I wish I could have a garden. Well, then I would have to weed and do yard work. Maybe I really just like looking at other people's gardens ;)

what a cool pic. And I love flowers. My mom has a beautiful rose garden. You don't see that much here. But we do have phenomenal Magnolia trees.
