The Front Garden – A Progress Report

We’ve essentially completed the front garden. Of course, when I say “we” I mean my husband because I have the blackest thumbs on either side of the Mississippi (at least that’s the excuse I give for not gardening). The grass is gone, the weeds are as gone as weeds ever are, and some of the plants are flowering.

Our son commented on how the spiky weeds actually looked like they belonged below the great log wall, so we bought some spiky lilies to put there.

The leucadendron from the back garden gave up the ghost. We replaced it with another one called golden tulip, or some such thing. It advertises beautiful yellow flowers with brown cone-like centers.

The plants for the charging station boxes are doing well, too.

All in all, this is the prettiest our yard has looked since the drought started. With any luck from the gardening pixies, it will continue to be pretty if the drought continues. If so, there may be a quilt in here.

    Tell your husband he did a great job. My husband and I decided to do our entire backyard in hardscape because neither of us can grow a thing.
