More improvements

Today I attacked some projects in the yard, including spraying all the dandelions in the front, weeding the river rock beds around the front (ugh), and doing some work in the flowerbed.

Here's the before (taken a few weeks ago) and the after photo.  I can't take credit for all the weeding - Erin and Mom helped me a lot with that on clean-up day.  I was amazed that five of the plants (sage and dianthus) I put in last year had survived (despite serious neglect).

I bought mulch, planted three Tickseed "Presto" flowers (yellow perennial flowers), and planted five sunflower seeds along the back of the bed.  This is the BEST it's ever looked - can't wait until everything starts blooming!

Thanks, Jin! It's really fun - sometimes my plants even live (when I don't forget to water them ;) ) Best wishes for your garden!
