Revitalizing the front garden bed

Dead plantsSo in what B and I call “another JB special” (it’s an inside joke…I’ll tell you later) two of our bushes nearest to our house didn’t last through the past winter. That combined with the fact that the plants are THE WORST for kids (they are prickly beyond belief) and are THE WORST for B (because we found out he is allergic to them), I decided that we were going to spend our Easter treat (a Lowe’s gift card) from my parents replacing them.

After A LOT of work digging them out (hence why there are no pictures of this process, I thought they had attached themselves to the cement at one point), and clipping their branches we put our new little plant into place. And I do mean little:

New plantI think his favorite part was pouring in the new dirt and patting it down.

Watering WateringAnd of course watering the plant was a highlight! J is such a hard worker, and I think he was most excited that he can check on the plant each morning from the front window.
