Manic Monday Part II

"Comparison is the thief of joy"-Teddy Roosevelt. Just in case you already forgot this post.

After getting back from a fantastic weekend in Austin, my dad and I picked out and purchased many plants to finish up the patio re-do.  During that time, he explained to me that I want to plant evergreens to last all year long, multi-years, and add in some annuals for color each season.   I picked out a few multi colored or variegated plants, some grassy plants, and a couple purple clovers.

My roommate and I spent under 1 1/2 hours out there after sunset, and look at the finished product!  We topped it off with some reddish mulch.  Mulch costs just barely $4 a bag and helps fight weeds and drying out.  My area (the length of all the edging measured at 33') required 3 full bags of mulch.

Now we're working on finding some good Adirondack chairs and a small table for well as an excuse to have friends over!!

Check back to the older post to see the nasty before pics if you need a reminder of how far we've come.

    Cute! It turned out great. The patio/porch is one of my favorite places in a house.
