Working with what I have

The makeover for the front garden is going to be really unique (in my opinion, anyway). However, I am leaving a few shrubs and trees there for the backbone. One of these that I am happy to leave be is Spirea 'Snowmound' which is up at the front door. It is now starting to burst open with its snow white flowers. When this shrub is in full flower, the branches just droop with the weight of them. I love it. It just gets better and better.
I also think that, really our front gardens are not our own. We owe it to the neighbours to give them something nice to look at. And believe me, I have been very slow in providing them with something a bit different. Hopefully the wait will have been worth it!!
