Starting to change my gardens...

Let me just say it has been years since we did the flower beds or foundation plantings in front of our home. We are working on a complete re do. The plant delivery is scheduled for July 11th. Now I know I should have taken more pictures this morning before we started to clean out the old....Hubby removed four scruffy old shrubs that had seen better days. It looks so much better like this. To all my peeps who helped answer shutters or no shutters? Notice they are not back on! Thanks for helping me. I like it better without too.

 I pulled so many plants from here. Potted about twenty large pots and threw so, so many out. Garden slugs that just fill up space, although pretty at times.
 What a clear view.
The shrubs we had before. Bye bye.

 and I can always fill a space quickly. It won't stay like this, but for now.

Now this is one thing that won't change. My son built this arbor and I have his great grandmother's roses climbing over it. It smells heavenly.
So, stay tuned for more changes over the month of July.

The arbor and roses are so beautiful! Looking forward to seeing what everything will look like in a few weeks.

Your home is beautiful and the landscaping is superb! I absolutely love the grape arbor. We have one, too. It is pretty special to us, also.

Have a wonderful week!

Isn't it fun to redo most anything ? Your yard is so attractive====can't wait to see what you do differently.
I, too, like your house better without the shutters. I love the color that you've painted.
Enjoy your summer.
