Weekend Snapshots: Flower Bed


Flower bed
 It's about time to tend my flower bed in front of my house.  It has been are for a year now.  The only plant in there was the miniature rose that my mother-in-law gave me as gift on my birthday three years ago.  It's a shame that I didn't take care of my flower garden.  But now, I am determined to make it look great.  

Oklahoma Rose.
 Last Saturday, I worked on putting bricks around the edges of the flower bed.  My husband bought some garden soil and he spread them evenly in the flower bed.  Few days later I bought a couple of rose bushes from Lowe's.  One is called Oklahoma Rose, the other is Golden Yellow Rose.  According to the description, both have big fragrant blooms.  We'll see.

A house spider on the water hose.
 After the work's done, it was time to water.  When I was about to grab the water hose, I saw this black fuzzy-looking spider.  It freaked me out!  I called my husband to have him get rid of the arachnid.  He said it's a house spider and it's not dangerous.  Still, 'gave me goosebumps. 

Anyway, next thing I'd do is to fill the space in the flower bed with little flowering plants.

What an interesting looking spider. I like the stripes on his legs.
