308 Garden :: 2 years of Progress





























I just took a picture of our house from the same vantage point (307's sidewalk) as the first picture i took in May 2006, just before the previous occupants moved out. Besides the lovely blue sky today, you'll notice the lawn is long gone, that lots of Bracken and Lillies and Lambs Ear and Black-Eyed Susans and Echinacea and Naturtiums and lots of Creeping Jenny and Lirope and other ground covers and other perinnials are in its place. We also immediately planted a Sugar Maple acquired in Coolville, and a Ginko brought from Georgia that BC grew from a seed. Our back yard is still a big transitioning mess, but the front is finally coming along. Most of the area of grass is now replaced with Lirope, which will only be mown once a year, at the end of winter. We've also been trying to let the large, old Yew shrubs close to the porch grow a bit more naturally, abandoning the sculpted lollipop look from May '06. Oh, and notice the chimney cap too!

I love before and after pics. So often ours or someone elses memory fails and the pictures are helpful in this regard.

A Picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words.
