A New Perennial Flower Bed

So, the front flower bed in our yard was pretty much just nothing. When we first moved in there was a massive juniper tree blocking all the sun from shining on it, and the only thing that grew was a massive clump of Lily of the Valley and a stray tulip in the spring. 

We chopped the juniper down because it blocked the sunlight from coming in the window, and also harbored a massive herd of snails, and spiders. 

Then, I snagged a bunch of pretty perennial flowers on sale over the Independence Day holiday, and planted them in. 

Other things planted here are my clematis on a trellis next to the house, and a small Black Lace Elderberry, that should eventually get to be quite large, and add some pretty texture to the front of the house. I'm pretty happy with how it's shaping up to be, and hope to continue filling it in with other perennials as time goes on. 

Plants include: Galliardia - Sunset Cutie, Rudbeckia- Autumn Colors, Veronica - Dark Blue Moody Blues, Shasta Daisy - Lacrosse, and Bee Balm - Balmy Rose varieties.
