Remember our Home To-do List 2012? Well we have accomplished #9. Landscape around the pool and deck. Well around the pool at least! I know it doesn't look like much yet but at every post there is either a fern, elephant ears or tall grass. Then in between there are fun colorful perennials like phlox, Stella d'Oro lilies, peonies and more. I'm hoping by summer it's a small tropical oasis. I'm sure not of the plants will be huge this summer, but even just the rock cleaned it up so much.
The lady at Lowe's told me she thought I was a bit over zealous. Me? Nah.
