April showers bring May flowers

Well over here we aren't getting much rain, but we have planted a bunch of new flowers to add some much needed pops of color. My husband is so amazing. He works hard all week and then works just as hard on the weekends doing projects I ask him to do. I have been mentioning to him that our front flower beds could use some help. We had way too much grassy stuff in the front and some variety was definitely needed. So my husband went out and picked out a bunch of flowers (that I have no idea what the names are, he could name everyone. Seriously). He is like some kind of botany genius. So we (and when I say we, I mean him) planted some plants and spruced up the yard a bit this weekend. Here is the before:

 Notice the uneven spacing above.
 Too much grassy things (sorry don't know the name of them)
 More grassy stuff, not spaced evenly
 Grassy grassy grassy

 You ready for the after? I am! Here we go:
 Loving the orange flowers and how clean it looks!
 Bye bye grassy!
 Hello clean and evenly spaced! I am a sucker for symmetry!
 Notice the lone orange hanging pot in the background? We are going to get two pots to go on either side of the front door and plant the lovely flowers in them.
 Awwww evenly spaced. Very nice! Great work to my husband! He spent all weekend digging up plants and planting plants and rearranging plants and buying plants. Such a lucky girl I am!

Now if I could just find some porch rockers for a deal!  Keep your fingers crossed for me :)
