One of the biggest projects of the week was planting some flowers and changing the mulch in our flowerbeds. I thought the difficult part was going to be planting the flowers, but I was so wrong. The biggest challenge was trying to decide which flowers to plant! Our builder started the flowerbeds with some basic landscaping, so I just wanted to add some colorful flowers to fill in the empty space. I can't even remember how many hours we spent in the local nursery, Home Depot nursery and Lowes nursery...but trust me when I say it was a ton. There were way too many choices, and I am very particular so I was overwhelmed to say the least. Thankfully, my parents were patient and helpful, we managed to make some good decisions and I am very pleased with the results. Of course, all of our landscaping is new so it can't compete with mature landscaping, but I look forward to watching everything grow over the next few years. Also, I must confess that after my mom and I decided where to place all of the flowers, my dad did about 99% of the actual planting and mulch replacing while my mom and I worked on projects inside the house. Thanks again, Mom & Dad! The flowers look lovely!
