Remove old worn out evergreen shrubs from your garden beds. Plant a few variegated shrubs, hostas, a few zebra grasses and add a few interesting rocks to create a brand new colorful garden bed.

Roses are beautiful as well; especially the English ones, in my opinion; not fussy or high maintenance like the hybrid teas; and the apricot one is the most beautiful one of all! A coral barked maple tree brings beauty year round as well!
I love color, roses, hydrangea, even butterfly bushes. How about also adding some fragrance, particularly if it's in a spot that people walk by frequently. Here's a good link on that: http://www.oldhouseweb.com/gardening/Detailed/816.shtml
If you like to garden, I always store my fresh veggies or certain seeds in a vacuum sealer bag. If you wrap the loose seads in saran wrap first it will prevent them from getting sucked out with the vacuum. I sell vacuum packaging equipment and I know this is a great help to gardeners.
