I mentioned that hippie didn't plant a vegetable garden this year as well as flowers in the front. Therefore, this is what out front has looked like most of the summer. Nasty, huh?
However on the other side, some of the mums came up and a few marigolds popped up by themselves. Still not pretty though.
We talked to the guy cutting our grass and he suggested if hippie didn't want to plant flowers anymore (which he said he doesn't) that he could put stones down. We also then can put some kind of planter stands out with flowers. I think we've decided to do that but will wait until the spring. Magellan said she would take the mums so in the spring hippie will uproot them and we will give them to her.
