No More Uglybushes!

And there was great rejoicing! It was nice and sunny out today, and after naptime Frédéric and the boys went out and removed the uglybushes from in front of the house! This is how it was when we moved in:

All the boys hard at work.

One big uglybush gone! The little uglybush was also removed, and the stinging nettle vine that grew under and around it, now we can see our flowers.

I think we will dig up the tulips after this year, and make rectangular flower beds along the front of the house. Our neighbors all have beautiful flower gardens, so we feel a little like the poor relative! Any suggestions for what to plant there?

NOOOOO!!!! NOT RECTANGULAR!!!!!! Please no! Curvy. Make them curve to soften the look of the rectangular shape of the house. Think about it for a while. :)
