Two and a Half Years Later

This is the view of our SJC backyard when we first bought the house in December of 2006.
This is the same view today. The arbor was painted black and behind it is the vegetable garden, in front, my flower beds.

Sheila, I love all those verticle elements of the palm trees. Your garden is beautiful and full of life right now! The before shot wasn't bad but the after....WOW!

I was going to say exactly the same thing as Dirt Princess! You really have accomplished so much in a short time. We've lived in our present home 5 years now, and I still have so much I want to do. I love the changes you have made.
