HAPPY FALL!!

I thought I would share some pictures with you tonight of the yard work/cleanup of the landscaping in the front of the house that I did last Saturday.  On the advice of a neighbor, I planted planted two very pretty purple-colored spiky plants (can’t think of the name of them), but as they grew, they overtook the landscape.  I didn’t like it.  It looked so messy and sloppy.  So, I yanked them out…. along with ALL of the Hosta.  The Hosta was looking so sad after all these years.  I can’t tell you how many times I have split those Hosta and they just kept growing back into very large plants.  Unfortunately for them, I was on a ‘simplify things’ mission, and they were outa-there!!!!

BEFORE:

AFTER:  More neat and presentable looking.
