With a new baby, our landscaping kind of got put on the back burner this year. We are normally the first on our street to plant flowers and weed the side-walk. This summer, we were the last (with the exception of our next door neighbors who can’t even handle mowing their front “yard” Seriously, it’s a 3 ft by 15 ft strip of 4ft tall weeds.) This weekend Dave had enough and
dragged brought me to Lowe’s to pick out some flowers.
And then….we realized….we still didn’t have enough. So Dave went back out to buy anther paper. And I started planting. You COULD plant the flowers first, and then lay the newspaper down around the plants, but that seemed like more work to me, so we laid the paper down, watered it s it stayed in place, then I tore holes where I was going to plant each flower.
Dave returned with the paper, and this time we had PLENTY. We finished covering the area, and planting the flowers, then Dave laid down the mulch.
I also got to plant Sunflowers in the front! I’ve always wanted sunflowers (they make me happy!) And Dave let me get two.
