Front Entry transformation

These Pink Neon Dianthus were here when we moved in and are just stunning in the spring and provided some nice gray-green color in the flowerbed once they finished blooming early summer. But they were getting a little ragged and Ken wanted to add some stone pavers and more of Grandpa's lichen-covered sandstone, so this summer, 2007, he dug out all the Dianthus. (It was too nice to throw away, so we invited all the neighbors over and they came with wagons and buckets and tubs and we found homes for all of it, plus kept some to restart in the backyard gardens.) The new flower bed looks nice, but it has some filling in to do. And I'm going to have to remember to buy red instead of pink for my pots next summer.
