Plus a friend has gifted us another mini, multi-variety grafted apple tree that he must remove to make room for a garage and shop in his yard. I hope it survives the move, it will be fun to have 2 mini apple trees. And now, take a look at some of the changes in the last two years.
This is what greeted me, waiting for the real estate agent. The house was an abandoned repossessed house.
The cedar trees (there are 2) had to be cut back, to let some light into the living room. In the photo above behind the trees is the living room window. After trimming there was 4 - 5 feet of piled limbs all over the yard . These were moved to the side yard. When time permitted the kids chipped the small stuff and cut the burnable sections into firewood.
One year later. My husband Terry is a wonderful gardener and this yard usually sparkles.
Now freshly painted. The late summer gardens need some attention, but with the house painting completed we can move the plants that need moving and get the beds defined with edging rockery and new bark mulch.
And this was the backyard that greeted me. Only there was more, lots more. The patio was a solid mat of moss. There was a large pile of garbage (you can see part of that in the left portion of the photo) and weeds had grown so thick in the Japanese Maple I was not sure it would survive.
One year later. The garden to the right now has been increased to two beds.
Our humble vegetable gardens today.
Let's not forget the bikes at the front door. That window is not that orange, you are looking at the sun having a say in the warmth of the day. Now to do something about the spray paint on the concrete left behind by previous owners.....
We hope you enjoyed this mini reveal.
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
