Being Frontyardovich

The line looks like a ghost. It was just a squiggle until I looked at it from the steps.
The front garden bed came to me when I decided on the second spruce. It anchors the house when viewed from the sidewalk.

Imagine the Daylilies spread out, Lady's Mantle, Bergenia (Pig Squeak) next to Lamb's Ear, Goldmound Spirea (I was thinking about Berberis thunbergii (Japanese barberry) 'Aurea' until I discovered it's on the invasive species watch), among others.

I planted the rose bed, I'll post pictures soon.

I've lost count of the number of buds on the lilies. :)

Two pumpkins have sprouted from the vines. I'm so excited (but I'm also so fearful that they'll be devoured by the kangaroos). I'm keeping an eye on them.
