Front Stoep - Before and After

I've been spending most of my free weekend time fixing up our garden. It's a time consuming, but rewarding, affair, especially when the plants turn so green and healthy at this time of year. (Or is it because Dan went round with the Miracle Gro?)

One of the big things we did recently was to replace the Portuguese Laurel and Japanese Holly hedges alongside our front porch with the more desirable boxwoods ("Winter Gem") and a row of annuals, for colour. (And thanks to my Dad, who did much of the back-breaking digging for the boxwoods!)

Beautiful spring flowers at a neighbourhood park. Does anyone know what they are?
