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.
