Is it Spring?

Because we finally did a little something to the front yard by planting flowers. We got some poppies this time (the big tall ones), a few pansies, something tall like a snapdragon but not, and something like a marigold. Note my acute observance of flower names.




I hope they last. The kids help plant them which means a few ever so gently ripped out of the containers before they were thrown into the ground. Might have lost a few roots along the way.

Those flowers are beautiful Liz! Hopefully they last, that would be a nice reminder of Spring when it's cold outside.

Don't worry - the frost will kill them before the lack of root system does! I think you should've chosen giant (faux)sunflowers...you know, Texas style landscaping...they're 80% off at michaels and in a week or two they could have nice faded teal leaves haha

Looks great, bet you can't wait to get the rest done. There is nothing better than a nice green lawn! But for now you will have beutiful flowers to look at.
