Front Yard Reveal

Hi all!

I have posted a few times about trying to decide which flowers to plant and how I really wanted it to look nice outside before baby arrives. Well, I just realized I never showed you the final product.

I must preface this with saying that we simply planted flowers and kept what was already in place because of our time crunch. I hope to rework the flower beds/landscaping next year. I also must say that I hate our front door.....so don't judge. ;)



Tatum helps us with the watering


The red flowers are verbena and the white flowers are alyssum. I prefer a much fuller look so I'm hoping they both grow and fill out more as the summer continues.


I also decided to add a few pots of flowers to soften the steps and because you can't have too many flowers in my book!



I'm proud of what we have accomplished considering it's been such a wet spring and since I was 8 months pregnant by the time we could start really planting. My mom was a huge help and we certainly couldn't have done it without her!

I head to the doctor today for my 40 week appointment. I'm hoping for some progress!

Have a great day!

Emily
