    Usaflag Landscaping the front yard

    Some of my perrenials survived or came back after the freeze but fewer than I had hoped . I had the yard guys clear out the dead stuff . I went and got some rocks , plants , bags of mulch . Just about done with the front . The yellow shrimp plants , red salvia , plumbago , roses , ixora , day Lilly , and some bushes survived the cold . I've been hammering away at it for 2 months on the weekends . But , I can't work all day in the heat like I use to . I put in compact lantana , blue salvia and asiatic Lilly's for the first time .

    Of course the new plants will hopefully mature and fill in some of the spaces .

    WOW! I'm impressed Henry! Looks great! I guess having your boat in the shop gave you time to earn your keep around the house.
    Next time I see ya, I'll give you some seeds for BEHIND the house.
