Yay flowers!

So today I began the long awaited journey of planting one of our flower beds. I guess a week isn't THAT long awaited, but it is a little. :) We bought the first set of flowers from Fred Meyer, and I will continue to add until I think it looks complete!

Pink and White Geraniums. LOVE them!

Blue something or other. My mom picked them out.

And the lovely flowerbed.

Okay its hideous.

But I promise it gets better.

After cutting back the whatever they were, getting rid of the GIANT ugly hose, and raking the dirt around, it looks MUCH better.

PS- This flowerbed is also home to the MOST potato bugs I have ever seen in one place in my life.

No joke.

So after that, I set up the flowers how I thought I wanted them. I changed it a couple times, but came up with this set up. I really like it.

It does need more flowers though.

But like I said, I will be adding all the time until it looks right. :)

And voila! Sorry for the terrible photo quality. My camera doesn't connect properly with Apple. She's finicky.

Yes I named my Mac Apple. But not after the computer company, after Chris Martin and Gwyenth Paltrow's daughter. Yeah, yeah.

So there you have it, the beginning of my garden!
