Flowers in the Ground, Garden Planted!

I have had everything planted for about a month now but am just not getting to posting about it.

Here are some before pictures of the garden and flower bed.

First step...procure the flowers. I went to Stranges because I have tons of shade in my yard. I find that Home Depot and Lowes don't always have the best shade lovers!

Second step...gather your tools and helper. ;)

Third step...clear out the old and plant the new!

Camille picked out these for her garden.

Ignore the broken board...it gives the fence character right? We planted tomatoes and jalapenos this year.

I also planted parsley, rosemary and basil.

And in the flower garden, I planted sweet potato vine, inpatients, coleus and ivy.

All those pictures were from May. I just went out and snapped a few of how things are looking today. We have had so much rain, everything is flourishing.

  No tomatoes yet but we have a few jalapenos.

Looks like I need to do some weeding. 

Here are the planters at my back and front doors and patio.

 Our yard still needs so much work! It is so hard to find the time.

  1. Looks great, Alyson! I really want to plant an herb garden too. :) We already have a bed full of mint, but I would love some basil, rosemary, parsley and cilantro. Let me know how yours turns out! xxoo
