Getting My Hands Dirty

I have embarked on a flower bed transformation. We had someone draw us up some plans, so we are trying to follow them. We love what she did, but I am no green thumb. :) When we moved into our house the front flower bed was covered with ground cover. I left it all last season, but then it started to die at some point and turned brown and blah. This season it came back and I kept feeling like it looked like weeds. So I give you my before: And the after: We will be filling in with other plants, but I feel like it looks much cleaner and will be a great blank slate for the other planting. So far I have spent the day at every flower shop in the city and this is as far as I have gotten:
I have to say, though, I am totally feeling it!
