I love seeing before and after pictures of other gardeners’ projects. Of course we all know that when it comes to gardening, there is really no “after”. Those pesky, wayward plants refuse to maintain anything like a status quo. Still, whenever I am feeling discouraged, it cheers me up no end to look at the pictures I took when we first moved here. (update in response to Loree’s query: moved here in 2004)
Looking toward the house from R’s studio (that’s a corner of it on the left, back when it was just a goat shed with a dirt floor)
Here is how it looks now, with the lavender walk in full bloom.
Except for the orchard and, of course, the surrounding forest, everything was a blank slate. This was the view from the front deck along the entry drive.
Now the drive is framed by berms and I am quite liking how it is shaping up.
I will do more of these progress reports as photos become available.
