For example, all these bulbs were planted by my mother. Don't they look stunning?

So I have learned that if my mom suggests I plant something, I should do it!
Last weekend, while she and my step-father were visiting, I sought advice from my mom on our herb garden. I had already planned to dig out part of the lawn in front of the house for our herbs, but wasn't sure what would look best. My mom had a great idea to make a swoopy, wide bed that would curve partly around the house. I made her draw it out for me.
Yesterday I started edging the design, but I didn't get far. Not because it was hard, but because my lovely husband decided it would be much easier if he tilled. Well, if you insist!
One other fact about my mom - she is addicted to our local greenhouse. We went just to "look" and ended up with a flat of primroses and some houseplants.

And here is the finished bed:
We also hung the kids' birdhouses. Now it is truly a family garden.
