WOWies!

Remember that list of projects I blogged about yesterday? When I got home from work yesterday (earlier than I usually do, because I actually was semi-on-time for work yesterday!), I decided to do something with my extra time and daylight. So I started weeding the garden!...What? You say that wasn't even on my list of projects?...oh, right. WHOOPS! :)

Here's a representation of what the garden looked like before I started. Yes, this is another part of the garden that I haven't gotten to yet. I feel like we live in a jungle house. It's a big project.

I bought all sorts of flowers: petunias, snap dragons, marigolds, columbines, forget-me-nots, and coreopsis/tickseed. They're a good mix of annuals and perennials. I'm hoping the annuals re-seed. I know the marigolds will, but the others are questionable.

I was out from 6:30pm - 10pm weeding, planting, and then watering the plants (including a trip to home depot). I wasn't able to get them all in. Here's a picture of the ones I didn't get to yet.

And finally, here's a couple pictures of the finished product. I'll take a picture later in the season, too, to show how they've grown and spread.

I've been admiring your flowers whenever I drive past. They look great! (this kind of makes me sound creepy, but what can you do...)
