Farmer Franks

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember that our landscaping was a disaster when we moved into our new house. Between construction, and an elderly previous owner who could not maintain her yard, we were left with a disaster. We spent last summer planting, planting and planting. And now this summer, we thought we could sit back and enjoy our hard work from last summer...

Not quite yet.

While our hard work from last year paid off, and everything came back looking beautiful and lush, I still wanted to add in a few more things. I had plans to plant annual flowers, veggies in my vegetable garden, add in a few more perennials, and mulch the beds.

That is nothing compared to last year's project of turning this...
Into this...

This past weekend we visited our neighborhood landscaping store to buy the supplies for this year's landscaping. We walked up to the front door, and before we could walk inside, we were shocked at the condition of the landscaping beds at our local, fancy-pants, garden center. Yes, fancy pants garden center couldn't touch the lovely landscaping seen at the Frank household.

Turns out the Franks would be excellent Farmers. Maybe not excellent farmers. That might be an overstatement.
