Cleaning Out the Flower Bed


Flower Garden Spring Clean-Up

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.

Cleaning up the flower bed truly made a difference. I enjoy sitting on the porch looking out into the yard much more now.

    Now don't go years again without weeding! (Just kidding.)
