My lawn guy...

When I moved to Ga, I gave up yard work. Too many years in NY doing that and it just is not my thing anymore. Jair has been cutting the grass and doing the weed maintenance for several years. He lives in my neighborhood. He calls me Miss Karin. At any rate, I no longer need or want a lawnmower and all the other "stuff". Last year I had him remove some bushes in my backyard that were leggy and too close to the house. Afterward he told me that some in the front were dying. They went away as well. I had good intention about replacing them... and we all know where good intentions lead...(the road to h--- is paved with good intentions-words echoed by my mother! ) Yesterday I knew he had been doing some lawn work-even I can tell when the grass has been cut! But I went right out after getting home and did not return until after dark. This morning I happened to look out the window. My naked area in the front has plants! I guess he decided that the area had no curb appeal. He took some plants that were in my backyard and replanted them in front! It looks quite nice. I need to get some pine straw and a few annuals and the area will be done. I wonder if he has anything in mind-marigolds...?
