dirt in the nails

Our house is one that inherited its “pre-planted” front yard from its building days, and while it’s not that old, the previous owners did not take much care in maintaining it. Our past life in the concrete jungle has not left us well prepared for the greener life, but we’re trying to fix things up slowly.

With the long weekend upon us, we dug a little more and added some desperately needed color to the front yard. I loaded up on some cheap mums for a touch of yellow, and we also grabbed some gorgeous orange hibiscus for the side. As for the overgrown shrubs… they’ll stay there until we can decide what we want to replace them. Now I just need to buy another 10 plants and finish up what I started!
