GF, your flower gardens are always lovely. Mine is just crap! Our neighbour planted stuff a couple years ago and it's spreading like crazy and taking over everything. It has choked out all of our roses this year. This fall I am pulling everything. If I see one sprout next year that I didn't put in I'm yanking the damn thing. When we moved in we put in a lovely, very specific garden, now it's just a rambling mess.
Other than the 30 or so potts of geraniums hubby does up.
Last week some kids were walking by and I heard one of them yell out "I like your flowers - all 50 thousand of them"
So while I guess I think they're a mess some people appreciate them.
