Early in May we decided to venture into the jungle that was our yard and try to tame some of the things growing in there. We decided to just rip everything out of the flower beds...because there were only ugly little bushes. And I eventually want flowers there. So we got to work digging up bushes. I also trimmed the other bushes in our yard.
Here is a tiny area that was full of weeds. Steven got all the weeds out before I could get a "before" picture. But it's a cute little rose bush. So far this year it's only shown us two little roses.
Here is the flower bed right by the bottom of our front stairs. You can barely even tell there were little bushes in there. But there were, amongst all the jungle of weeds.

Here is the flower bed after all the hard work. There is still some weeds just to the left of this picture. But we got tired. And we are trying to decide if we want to keep the rocks or not. We're not worrying about the weeds between all the rocks right now. We're not THAT ambitious.
