Hittin' the yard Part 2

You can see what our poor yard looked like here before we started tackling it this spring.  Renovations and construction don't mix well with grass, plants and flowers!

Our old house had a small, but well established garden with lots of lush plants. Thankfully, before we moved, J had the forethought to divide and pot up lots of our perennials. At least we had a base to start from.

It is still a work in progress and we're adding to it each day.  I'm thinking about having a neighboorhood plant swap...anyone ever done one before?  Helpful hints or advice?  We're all about the free stuff!

Here are the after shots.  Yipee!  Flowers and green grass (hopefully still more coming in!) and order :)
Iris and our herb garden
Prolific oregano, peonies, iris, hosta and daylily
Hydranga, hosta and a few tiny boxwoods
Arbovitea, hosta and a great big hydrangea I planted back in high school  :)
The raised bed in the front was in good shape but we did add in a vegetable garden.  This side of the house faces south and it is amazing how the temperature varys from one side of the house to the other.  It blazes here in the summer.  The veggies should love it!
