Beauty Uncovered

I love my flower garden. Whoever lived in this house before us knew what they were doing with flowers. They planted a number of perennials that all bloom in various stages so that the garden is always full of colorful blossoms.

I, on the other hand, know NOTHING about flowers. I can't tell a weed from a flower sometimes. So for the past two years I've lived here I have been afraid to pull anything because I wasn't sure if it was a weed or flower.

However, this is what my garden started to look like.

I finally decided that I needed to take drastic measures. So for the past month I've dug and chopped and sweated. I replanted some Sweet Williams from another bed where they weren't getting enough sun. This weekend I finally finished and here is the final result.

Things are blooming nicely.

Hopefully I can keep it looking this good!
