Yard Work

So, does anyone remember our horrendous flower garden from this post? I'll refresh your memory here:

Notice the overgrown everything. There's two giant purple sage bushes (if you can call them that) on either side of a HUGE rose bush. In between, there's a crape myrtle that's grown almost through the roses and the purple sage. You can't really tell here, but we even have a tiny red oak tree and a tiny pecan tree growing in there! To the far right, you can see an out-of-control plumbago. The original post was to show the beginning of spring....a few roses.

Now, Jason's cut/hacked a ton of extra limbs and it looks much better.

And here's what's left of the plumbago:

It doesn't look great, but at least it's cleaned up. Our plan is still to try and transplant the purple sages to the backyard. The plumbago will probably just disappear into thin air because it's just plain ugly now. We're going to try to trim the rose bush to a more manageable size, but we'll see.

It's the little improvements, I tell you. It's not perfect, or even pretty at this point, but it's something!

I think I have a plumbago by my front door and those things grow like crazy! We cut ours down to nothing every few months and it keeps coming back bigger and bigger each time. I don't even touch the thing, no water, anything and it keeps growing!
