The front flower bed had become wild looking.
After years of not weeding the plants had become overgrown and unmanageable. As the spring weather rolled in it was time to tackle more yard work. So I dug up all the old plants in the flower bed and removed all the weeds.
Here's what the flower bed looks like now!
We have lots of shade in the front of the house, so I chose to plant hydrangeas. I love hydrangeas! I have 2 small plants on the other side of the yard that I've had success with so adding more was any easy choice.
Hydrangeas remind my husband of his late Nana. I planted them with her in mind.
The Endless Summer Hydrangea has repeat blooms from spring through fall.
Mulch adds the finishing touch.
I added few hanging baskets for instant color.
Flowers on the front step make for a pretty entry.
Our old door mat was wearing thin, so I replaced it with this one.
Cleaning up the flower bed truly made a difference. I enjoy sitting on the porch looking out into the yard much more now.
What have you been up to lately? Have you planted your flowers yet?
