If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw what we were up to this weekend (click on the pics to make them bigger):
We took a trip to Lowe's to pick out flowers and straw for the beds. Lowe's was a madhouse! Guess that's what nice weather will do.
The small bed out front got the Gerbera daisies. Lovely shadow, hmm? The bed next to the house just got a couple more of the flowers that it already had. I can't remember what they're called and I didn't take a picture. Fail.
We decided to turn this area in the backyard into a bed, so first we had to dig up all the grass. I didn't really like this part.
We put the lilies (I think they're oriental lilies) in the new bed, but there was still a good bit of room.
We went and got some day lilies out of my parents yard and added them in to finish that bed.
Last year we planted azaleas in that small bed in the front yard. Azaleas are supposed to come back but only one did. (Apparently they're temperamental.) So the one surviving azalea was moved to the back by the new bed.
Since we were already knee deep in all of this, we decided August could just go ahead and get a bath, too. And his teeth brushed. And a trim. He wasn't very happy.
Pandora on the Blackberries.
Doesn't he look nice?
Ok, so, pictures of flowers and the dog. Doesn't really have anything to do with fashion or beauty. OH! I wear pink gloves for gardening. They're really cute. True story.
