On Sunday we finally received a break in the rain, and that's when I got to work in the yard.

Yes, I enjoy working in the flower beds, and feel a great sense of accomplishment when I complete projects. I am that person. I also love pretty flowers and the satisfaction of hard work.

So Sunday morning, I was up early and shopping for plants. I have a flower bed in the backyard that had already been cleaned out and was ready to be planted. The boyfriend and I discussed our options and decided that we wanted to add a couple knock out rose bushes, some blue juniper, liriope and mondo grass to the area.

We visited a couple of nurseries and collected all of the necessary supplies, before digging in. Finally I located a partially broken terracotta pot between the rose bushes and planted with in it, a sweet potato vine. Take a look! It's a work in progress, but we are enjoying it as-is for now!
