A Facelift

This weekend was definitely full of projects. It started out with the one we've been avoiding for a couple weeks: cleaning out the apartment. It took several hours worth of scrubbing, but we finally got that place in shape and turned in our keys. Woohoo!

While waiting for some paint to dry over at the house this weekend, I decided I really hated the flower bed in front of the house and wanted to fix it. So, we went and bought some plants and gave the house a mini-makeover!




TA DA!!! And the best part is, they're all perennial, low-water plants!


Technically this was filled with grass and weeds...


My favorite: Zinnias! The only annuals we planted

It still needs a little work, but it's getting closer!

Paulie showed me these pix in order to remark on how attractive your house looks! And there was total household concord on the issue. :D
