Rock on...

There are times in our lives when we look back and say "Gee, I wish we had done _____." Well, Mike and I had one of those moments today. Previously, we had planted ground cover in our front garden area only to realize it was not the right choice of plant. Of course, being in Florida, we also had the issue of "Hey, the mulch is floating down the driveway again" with all the rain that we get here. So, with the help of my brother in law Tim who about a month ago, took on the tedious job of ripping out the ground cover and mulch, and my brother who I'll say is an excellent rock-go-getter and rock spreader, and myself who also picked up a shovel and unloaded my share of rock, our garden has transformed into the "Why didn't we think of doing this 3 years ago" project. I LOVE IT! Thanks to all the hard work from the "brothers" - ok, and even you too Missy! (She did take on a few shovel-fulls herself!) We're still going to pick up a few nice flower pots so I can still have some plants there but at least I can replace them and not have to worry about digging up plants and replacing mulch all the time! Here are some before and after pics!
