This is looking towards the same corner of the front garden. It's interesting to look back on how we got from 'before' to 'after'....I do remember sitting on the front porch and drawing out the basic shapes literally on the back of an envelope! And planting little birch trees about 4 foot high....the grass improved just with regular cutting, the soil proved to be quite fertile and I began growing lots of things from seed as soon as we got an 8 x 6 greenhouse (2002/3 I think).
A lot of thinking, imagining, and sheer hard work.
And pleasure, joy and relaxation.
I do love my garden.
Do you have any before and after shots of your house or your garden?
Why not go and dig them out?
