The majority of our work happened in the front. I planted geraniums in the pots and put a fern by the door.
Cody planted this dogwood tree in front of our dining room. We had a tall holly bush beside the window but I absolutely hate holly. It is not a very welcoming plant if you ask me. :) We put it in the back yard by the deck. So for four years I have been asking Cody to plant a tree here. It was worth the wait. I love it here. I didn't want anything too full because it would have blocked some of our light inside. I can't wait until next spring to see it in full bloom. We kind of got in on the last of it this year.
I think the plant I am most excited about is this limelight hydrangea. I love these! I cannot wait until it blooms this summer. Hopefully I will be able to dry some of the blooms too.
