Focus Tighter to Enjoy Your Front Yard
I know we're a candidate for Desperate Landscapes, but I mostly just shrug it off. We've got big plans. And plans take time and money. Our neighbors will just have to be patient for a few years.
Occasionally, though, I have to look for the bright side. My mom has been very generous with her perennials. She divides most springs, and she gives me plant halves of almost everything. In three springs, I've acquired some nice flower beds. I've added hostas, day lilies, primrose, purple sage, and iris to the property, all visible from the street. June is the best month for my perennial gardens, and this is how I get through the ugly rest of the year:
