Anne and Ken had some major work done on their front yard this past weekend. The gardeners removed nearly all the old, ugly plants that the builder had put in across the front, and put in new ones -- of Anne's choice! (The old ones were replanted in a remote part of the back yard; they may make it ... or not.) These two planting areas really look great now, and the Linehans are a happy bunch.
Here's a link to a photo of their front yard in March 2006. Notice the non-descript plants under the windows of the house on either side of the front door.
