A change is as good as a rest

From this......
To this.

I really should have had a before, before the after shot (pre-demolition) but you know how you live with things for such a long time, that you don't really see the problem. Or see how bad it is. Or see how you could have done so much better.

Ahem.

Well, now's not the time.

But my garden has seen a major transformation this Summer. And no, that's not why I haven't posted for 7 months, it didn't take that long! There were other things happening.....

I wake up every morning and look out on this scene and I could not feel happier about it. From the greenhouse, inherited from my dear sister who never got to see it put up, to the lawn (the third one I've done - this one is staying!), to the rose against the wall on the right (now added to since this shot is about 2 months old) - all of it makes me smile a big beaming smile.

ALOT has changed this year, some of it I want to share here...and some, well, those who've been around me will know, is perhaps left in the past.

If anyone out there still looks in on these pages, I hope to keep a more regular appointment with you.

But if I don't, you'll find me, most likely, in the garden.

I just found your blog via Farmgirl Susan... this is a lovely site, BettyWestern. I'm sorry to read about your sister. This garden project here was a big one and you sure did a fine job... it looks beautiful.
