|:( Isn't this such a SAD site!!!??!!|
Last weekend we went to a cactus and native Texan plant competition at the Houston garden center that we had read about in the paper that morning (Yes we still get the paper 4 days a week and no I do not have the desire to go digital in this arena of my life:). Well we ended up coming home with a few baby cacti and some major inspiration for the front yard! No, not the inspiration to make a west Texas rock garden, the inspiration to attack the barren wasteland that was once a lush garden! SO I began checking the local nursery deals and thinking of the layout in my head. I LOVE fall flowers...esp Mums!! All colors!!! They remind me of everything that is fall (my fav season) so I knew that they would be the major centerpiece of the garden!
SO Mason and I loaded up and headed to Home Deeps to check out their flower assortment. **They have a one year guarantee on flowers and will price match from other places. ALSO, the Home Depot by
my house happens to have the NICEST employees I have ever encountered at ANY store I have ever shopped at! Not kidding!
We ended up with some nice soil, pine mulch, new gloves (a must :) and as many beautiful plants as we could fit into our cart! Luckily my darling hubby met us there to help load all of this onto a flat and a cart to share the load!
After a ton of super fun work, here is what we ended up with! I am now in LOVE with gardening!! Thanks to the front yard, I am now ready to attempt to tackle to beast....AKA the back yard.
