Spring Planting 2013

Let the work begin!

I decided to take a week-long vacation from work this spring so that I could whip my yard into shape.  Last year, I spent every weekend in May planting flowers and spreading mulch, and on top of full work weeks, I was exhausted.  Therefore, I didn’t have a chance to really plant as many flowers as I would’ve liked.  This year, though… my yard makes me smile.
After countless trips to local nurseries, Lowe’s, and Home Depot, and 156 bags of mulch later…
Our yard.  And I love it.

I grew up helping my mom with her yard every spring, and so I truly love gardening and landscaping.  I’m admittedly not the best at it, but I try.  This year, I went a little nuts with flowers.
My first ever rose bush!
Red and yellow gerbera daises
I can’t remember what this is called, but it is SOFT.
Orange asiatic lillies
Pink asiatic lillies
Orange geraniums
Red geraniums
Dusty Miller
Maroon tulips
Purple and white calla lillies

Of course, I can’t forget our vegetable garden beds which, for the first time, have life!

As well as a few hanging planters and various pots for our backyard deck:

I had so much fun.  This is my favorite time of year!
