Three Years

Last week my son sent me some photos he took of the gardens in SJC in February of 2008 when we had just started on the conversion of the lawn to garden project. This was when we affectionately named this little island in the mass of lawn "Flying Rabbit Island".

This is a picture taken from the same angle three years later. It's funny because sometimes I still think the pepper trees are so small and yet they have clearly grown a lot over the years. I often encourage people that consult me about new projects they are planning in the garden to start a blog. It is a wonderful way to document your progress and look back on all you have accomplished even if you are the only one that ever looks at it!

Beautiful! It's always nice to go back and look at beginnings.

Have a lovely weekend in your bit of paradise.

What a difference! How nice to have that picture to be able to look back. Sometimes I forget that my 'projects' just need the miracle of time.

Outstanding! We forget the progress in our gardens -- and the photos are proof that good things come to those who wait.

Your work is such a gorgeous. We forget the progress in our gardens and your shared photographs are proof that good things come to those who wait.
