Rock Garden in Progress

I've always wanted a flower rock garden in our new back yard. There are lots of rocks in our neighborhood - from very small to tremendous boulders, so we have lots of different sizes to choose.

This is an ongoing project which started last fall. 

My hubby and
friend are seen here collecting some of the rocks.

They used a heavy duty hand truck to actually move the rocks without too much strain.
You can see how empty out backyard is from the patio.  We hired the guy who cuts out grass to actually cut out the sod and add topsoil and mulch to the area. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of this. 

I planted African Daisies . . .

 and added Creeping Phlox . . .

dwarf snapdragons in fuchsia and pink . . .
The weather has been great and I can't wait for it to get a little warmer at night so I can add more flowers. Enjoy
