Adding Pizzazz to the Yard!

Bling, bling! We went from blah to wowzie!

Check out the before photos: It wasn't bad...it was just plain, no color, just brown and a little green. But Momma likes color! So this weekend we went in search of some beautifying flowers for the yard.

And what once was blah...now has some pizzazz!  Flowers all around! Some mini-roses, impatients, snapdragons, hydrangeas (not flowering yet), and the hybrid yellow calla lilies that I planted a couple of months (came up this year, although they were supposed to come up next year) add up to a snazzy yard.

Our front flower area also went from boring to colourful.

It was a great Saturday for all of us. Going from store to store finding about flowers and the kids choosing their own little flower for the yard to finally deciding on the flowers/plants was a great family time. Work can be fun...when it is done with those you love :).
