Our front yard garden

| No Comments

Above are photos of the plants and flowers in our front yard (taken May 6).
On the last weekend in April, I was finally able to get outside to work in the garden! It was cold or rained nearly every day through March and April!

On Friday evening after work and Saturday, I hit the front yard and on Sunday the backyard. It was delightful! The weather was warmish-cool - not too hot, not too cold - with a light breeze.

Some of the plants that weren't working for me were removed and discarded. New plants were put other in their place. Two rose bushes were moved from the short part of the L to the long part where they'll get more sun. I've added more color, which I adore. I'm still undecided whether I want to replace the now nearly leafless vine on the front porch (it has lovely purple flowers!) or add another vine to it with the hope that the purple-flowered vine will come back.
