Family Gardening Festival!

So, as I mentioned before, my neighbor chopped a nice whole in the front bed that separated a forsythia from a rhododendron, and that annoyed me immensely to boot.  Finally, after a weeks vacation in NH with Mom and my sister, we all came down here and went to a local nursery, where I bought a bunch of plants.  We the came back to my house and embarked on a 3 hour gardening festival that ended in the death of multiple weeds, one forsythia, and a large amount of bittersweet (which is the devil).  We replaced these casualties with 3 heuchera, 2 Japanese painted ferns, a Lady’s mantle, a delphinium, and an oakleafed hydrangea.
