Beautiful Flowerbed Finally Finished-Take a peek at what two old cripped up ladies can do!
Now let me give you some back ground..this huge flowerbed was over run with weeds and plants that just took over. For the last couple of summers it was so bad that it looked like a jungle..
So with that said the first thing we had to do was start yanking out what she didn't want in there any more and all of the weeds before we could invision a real flowerbed...
So each of us armed with a spade, a bent fork little hand rake looking thing & our rubber garden pad we went to work one weed at a time... Now picture two cripped up ladies scooting across a 43 foot flowerbed a foot at a time on our little foam garden pads digging up weeds.. We laughed so hard at our cripped up selves it was rediculous...
We did like an 8 ft section at a time.. Once we got about half of it done we could see taht we wanted to move large plants around so we had to find the shovel I dug while Peg Pulled a little to losen them up and out they came & into pots. We gathered stones from the farm for the pond and the stone edging.
You can't see it to well in the first picture but there is a Clemitis Vine in the left corner. We hung strings down from the top of the porch for it to climb and as of today it has gone 4 feet up the twine and has over 20 Flowers on it... It just needed a place to climb to really bloom..
Angel got her the pretty stepping stones once it was all done.
Angel also got her the pretiest shepards hook with Humming bird feeders on it. We put it behind the pond.
I donated my Water spout filter from my old pond. Peg Loves Frogs so I found all kinds of cute Stuffed Frogs at the Good Will for 33 cents each.. She loved all of them so they are here there and everywhere in the Flower Garden...All the stones we gathered around the farm to rebuild the Pond.
Some make there way to the swimming pool to make the kids jump when they hop around...hehehe!
They have almost all gottent here legs and started to make there way around the yard and trees...so soon we can treat the pond..
Once we finished the pond we started the second section.
Angel got her mom more Stepping Stones as we progressed...
It now has flowing Petunia's growing out of it..
Peek a Boo another Froggie ....
I hope you all enjoyed visiting our Flowerbed journey. I can't wait till everything is in bloom it should be really beautiful..
I will bid you all a Good day filled with Sunshine and happy moments!
