(Posting photos for Danielle)

Danielle & my son are engaged to be married & they live in the upstairs apartment of our home. Danielle has only ever had a few houseplants, as they haven't a yard of their own to put a garden in yet....my son told me he wanted to surprise Danielle with a place to grow flowers of her very own, so I gave my son & Danielle a bunch of space in the back yard to put in some raised beds so Danielle could actually put a small garden out.

This is what Danielle & my son spent the day doing yesterday....

The heart shaped bed is really cute & much bigger than it looks in the photo, I think they did a great job with the curved bed too. Now my DIL will have a place to plant all of her flowers:)

NICE JOB!!!!
Very professional looking!!

One dumb question, can a lawn mower be driven
thru there?? That's one small item we negected to
messure when we did my 5 raised veggie beds, we did two horizontal with the house and three perpendictular and there's a rhubarb patch on the other side of those three.... I can barely make a turn into there to get the mower thru [Razz] [Embarrassed] [Frown] [Mad] [Roll Eyes]

And another one by the side of my house and cherry tree, and a walk way, there's this tiny strip of grass, I can't get thru that with the lawn mower, have to use the weed whacker, and I'm not always the fastest with that thing....

But they did a nice job...

What did she decide to plant???

Weezie

Oh, yes, more pictures please, love 'em!!!

Aaawwwwww!!!! How cute!

I just HAD to call my teenage daughter in to read the story and then see the photos, coz I knew she'd get such a kick of of them. And she did!

She thought you were very special people to do that for your son and his fiance. And she thought it was SO romantic [Love] that they made a heart shaped bed.

What a special thing!!

That does look very nice, and a cute couple too! [thumb] So, what is Danielle planting??? [thinker] It would be kind of cool to do all red flowers in the heart......Keep the pics coming......love looking at them [thumb]

Danielle needs to get in here & post what she actually planted. I gave her quite a few packs of seeds & she had some neat seeds that her mom brought her back from a vacation to Alaska. I am not sure what all she planted, but I know that I gave her...

kalidescope 4 o'clocks
shasta daisies
assylum
gypsophelia white & pink varieties
calla lilies
several types of marigolds
pink petunias
dianthus - pinks
hollyhocks - black
coleus - rainbow

I will tell her to get in here & post what she finally planted. She has been out in the yard all weekend working on it:) I just love that she & my son love gardening too. Something so nice for the two of them to share. And now mom has some new flower beds once they get their house [thumb] That is probably a year or two away yet, so she will get a lot of practice in until she has her own yard to make beautiful.
