Front Garden Updates

After we got back from Gibbs Gardens, I was inspired to spruce up our own garden for the spring. Lowe's is currently running their Spring Black Friday sales, so I stocked up on mulch to re-cover the front. So, here are the results of our sprucing so far. 

We put the arbor that Jared and I (and Connie and Justin!) got married under over the walkway to the front door. 




Jared bought me a bare-root clematis to grow up the archway. I planted it in that concrete block.


I'm going to cut back part of this honeysuckle vine so the front porch won't be overrun with this jungle vine!


But I'm leaving everything that is growing out front because I want it to eventually reach onto the arch. It made it that far last year, so hopefully it will do the same this year.



I'm obsessing over this ground cover. I don't even know what it is, but it looks so happy! It will get tiny yellow flowers eventually.


I don't know if my rosemary bush will bounce back from those winter storms we had, but I keep holding on to hope!


I transplanted my snowball bush between the peach tree and the wind chimes, and it has little snowballs on it already! I'm so excited!


We've still got some work to do, but I'm excited about this progress! I'm hoping to add more perennials that are spring blooming, so we will have more early color. We'll see how it goes!

Have y'all started any of your springtime projects?
