Houston front yard


Our new front yard in our Houston-area home. Landscaped as part of the new home package, and limited up the wazoo by homeowners association regulations as to what can be planted. We'll figure out soon enough how stringently those restrictions are applied. For now, we haven't even really figured out what all those plants are in our landscape package...
