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.
