Flower Beds Made Pretty

Hubby had last night off. And it was really nice out so we wanted to get the flower beds in the front weeded & mulch put down. I played w/the kids while the hubs did the flower beds. Honestly, I'm glad he wanted to do it, I really didn't want to do the weeding, not real fond of it. I only have 1 before pic, kind of thought about taking pics too late.

once he was done w/the weeding.....

Then put the mulch down. I like it! Such a difference!

Some of my pretty flowers....

We found many, many rocks in our yard. So, I came up w/the idea to line the flower beds with them. I figured it would be a good way to keep the mulch in & make it even prettier. The kids & I went around the yard, behind the garage, etc.. hunting for rocks.

I didn't get to it last night, so today while Rye was sleeping I got right to it.

I'm def. happy w/it! What do you think?

Now I can't wait to get some hanging plants for the porch. I might also get some more flowers for the beds, i want more color!

I also did a couple spray painting projects I will post tomorrow!

Have a great night!
