A few weeks ago my neighbor across the street brought her Jeep over and pulled up four half-dead bushes from in front of my porch. How sad and forlorn this area looked!
I had two burgandy rose plants and daylilies planted in this bed and I added a yellow rose and four red geraniums. I then layered newspaper, weed fabric blocker, and six bags of mulch.
Ah, looks much better!
The next project to tackle was the flower bed to the left. It looked even worse than the first one!
This bed also had daylilies and two pink knock-out roses. I weeded it all out and planted bulbs yesterday: bleeding hearts, dinner plate dahlia, stargazer lilies, gladiolas, and hollyhocks. I hope they grow!
This is what it currently looks like. I haven't put down mulch yet as it has to wait until next payday. Oh, in the white pvc pipe/pot are petunias and I purchased the yellow pot to repot the plant my sister gave me months ago. Can't wait to paint the porch a rich chocolate color...the yellow pot will really pop then!
Thanks for taking a peek at my little garden!
