When we moved into the Cavender house 5 (Has it really been 5 years already?) years ago….our front flower beds were filled with Indian Hawthorn.
Not a very pretty bush. Just kinda …….there.
It was only 2 years ago that we removed the not-quite-our-taste bushes from the front flower beds and added all this awesomeness.….
Cacti and succulents….
But 7 months later, after a particularly grueling winter, everything looks like this……
Here, get a closer look at the devastation….
We were a little bummed too. Even considered calling FEMA.
Thought we were picking plants that were hardy. They were perfect for our Texas summers…..not so much the winters.
But now, a little over a year later, we’ve grown into this…..
Like a breath of fresh air…….and green grass.
Might possibly look this spectacular because Jamie spends every Saturday working in the yard.
