How Does Your Garden Grow?

So there's a general belief out there that states that Landscaper's have the worst yards...well, much to my husband's dismay, this is a true statement this year...we LOVE fixing up the yard in the summer, but honestly, after moving every year and not being able to enjoy our hard work the next year is starting to run it's course and we're just not as enthusiastic about our yard this year...
However, one dark and stormy night (literally) my husband came home from work with a bunch of perennials from a clients yard that they wanted removed and so my wonderful frugal husband brought them home and decided to plant them in our front flower beds that had yet to see any flowers!!
So out came the flood lamp from the garage and I aimed it to where he was digging and planting, then the rain came, lightly at first...then it just poured, all the while, Jamie was making our front garden plot look "pretty" at 11pm!! Then about 3/4's of the way into it, the lightening and thunder started! LOL I seriously felt like we were midnight grave diggers and was all giddy with the ridiculousness of planting perennials in the middle of the night while it was storming out!!
