April showers bring May flowers

I've been anxious for flowers....and all week, we've had rain, I keep thinking we'll get blossoms soon & lo and behold, a small daffodil opened up in our front yard. Many buds are ready to open. Rob and I are trying to figure out how to re-landscape our front yard. Should we keep the rocks? Mulch? Curving bed or straight (he though old railroad ties might be cool, I was thinking bricks)?

Yesterday, we went to the art museum with our friends, Zizi & Ana. The elevator has an awesome mirrored ceiling!

Sounds like a good fun time w/ friends at the museum & I LOVE THE FLOWER BLOOMING ! I love RIVER rocks landscape. Someday, we'll have a house & we'll never move again & I want BIG RIVER STONES.

Great pics. Love the elevator and the "totem" on the steps.
Sounds like you had a fun day.
Hurray for spring.
I think I really like the river rocks. Low maintenance means more time for trips like this one.

I say, keep the rocks. Do they cover your whole front yard? If so, maybe just keep them in one bed.

For me, always curve beds. My husband prefers straight lines.

Good luck!
