In May, our retaining wall was looking like this:
Since then, the petunias have been growing like crazy but some of the other flowers didn't fare as well. I moved all of the impatiens to the backyard as the petunias were overshadowing them. I also moved the peony to the backyard and added a hydrangea in its place.
I added a few cute accents, like this smiling snail whose chipped paint only makes him more charming in my opinion.
And what's a garden without a gnome?
To celebrate Independence Day, I also added some patriotic updates (you can read about how I decorated for the 4th of July indoors here).
I added a few small flags...
..and a few of the confetti looking stars and stripes.
I love coming home and seeing all of the blooming flowers! Do you have any landscaping favorites for full-sun areas?
