Flower Beds

I love gardening and our front flower beds were starting to look a bit unkempt. So we trimmed the lantana bushes down to the ground hoping we didn't kill them. And we didn't! They are back prettier than ever. We moved the dusty miller that were very overgrown to the retaining wall in the back yard. We planted some nice petunias, a new gorgeous rose bush (that for some reason has lost all its blooms, maybe it needs to be moved to a sunnier location??) I will be working on the backyard ,building a little brick patio so I can put a bench swing on it and a flower bed next to it so I can put a fountain in there. Here's a few pics:




We still have a ways to go, like adding more mulch and trimming the trees but I am liking that we can see more of the front porch and I can't wait to see the roses bloom. I have added plant food to all the plants so we'll see if that helps.
