happenings in the yard - kaboom!

The first big project we did after moving into our house was borrow a tiller and dig up a large kidney bean shaped flower bed in the front yard.  Over time we've filled it to the brim with pass-a-long plants, store bought perennials, seeds and annuals.  There's a saying with perennial flowers, "first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap."  Well, this is the fifth year and boy oh boy the flowers are blooming like mad.

    5th year reap? such a bounty, Melissa!

  2. I've never heard that one before, but I love it! Your flowers are just gorgeous.
