New Flower Garden

While hubby and I were fixing up our front porch we used some of the extra concrete to fill in some holes by the side walkway to our house. It left quite a mess in the grass area so I tried to figure out how to get rid of or cover up the mess… then it came to me… add a slightly raised flower garden over top and along the edge of the walkway…Gerber DaisyThis way it helps cover up the mess and provides some better definition for the walkway to our side door. I liked the way it turned out…New gardenI then had to figure out what flowers to add. Normally I like perennials, but they didn’t have any pretty ones when we went to the garden center so I picked these annuals…. The pretty Gerber daisy above. Then two of these multi colored duster like flowers to go on either side…Hot flowersHot flowers 2Finally these pretty delicate pink and white flowers on either end…sml flowerI am quite happy with how it came out and it makes me smile each time I go out the side door…New Garden 2It is amazing what a little flower garden can do for your mood 🙂

    Very pretty! I hope that your doggies are trained to not trample the flowers 🙂

      Yes they are trained not to walk in it. Once in a while they step in it to get over it, but don’t really mess anything up 🙂 I am glad you like it, I worked hard to get it done 🙂

      Thank you… I did a lot of planning and then hard work to get it just right. I usually overfill my bed with all sorts of flowers… no rhyme or reason, just picking out things I like. This time I had a plan. I am sure you could do it too 🙂 I love that new mulch that doesn’t fade… it is worth the extra money 🙂
