One hour and three shrubs later...

Over the past month or so, Geoff and I have been trying to get the flower beds looking half-way decent. They are fairly large beds and all they had in them were a few large shrubs and a lot of weeds. So we've been tilling portions at a time. We planted some impatiens a few weeks ago. We also knew we wanted to do more, but didn't know what. Pictured below is what we had done so far...


So this morning, my dad took me to this nursery near downtown. We looked around for a bit and I ended up getting 4 dwarf youpon and 6 shrubs (that makes TEN all together) that I am unsure what they are (but they are pretty and I like them).



So I had big plans for the afternoon that I was going to plant them all while Parker was napping. And it was going to be a surprise to Geoff when he got home. Yeh right!!! But I did get 3 shrubs planted and the rest are in their spot, patiently awaiting their placement in their new home! It was a LOT of hard work, but I honestly enjoyed it. It was hot, hot, hot! My arms feel like jell-o, but I have high hopes, yet again, that this work will help tone my arms! haha. Stay tuned for the finishing pictures of our flower bed (hopefully that will be in the near future)...
