I just wanted to update about our landscaping. The front bed we extended was a GREAT idea. I think it looks much better!
The poppy foliage is just not pretty, readers. NOT at all. I think we should have put them behind the drift roses, but alas, I keep telling myself that the greenish/yellow foliage now blends in with the hostas.
And what I'm most excited about is...
Gardenias!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The gardenia bushes we planted this year are blooming. I LOVEEEEE the smell of gardenia, and it makes me so happy when I walk outside and get a whiff of the that smell in the air. So good! I am elated because last year we planted them in the bed where the poppies are, and they did not bloom. They died:( It was too much shade. So, this year we planted them in the bed that is front of our garage, and they are doing fine. So happy:) #itsthelittlethings
