The sign reads" My house may be messy.But you sure see my gardens"LOL..My neighbour gave that to me.Just so you all know my house is never messy its neat but not immaculate..She was older and thought perhaps I should be scrubbing my floors on my hands and knees.She has long moved away.. :D

Sheikea...your elderly neighbor was probably a relative of mine :roll: . Do you have big plans for that new flower bed? You'll have to post before and after pics once it's done.
