A few weeks ago I was strolling back through my blog and came upon photos of the backyard in May of 2015. I saved the pics so I could do a post on how the garden has matured in one year.
So, here we go! Let's take a look at the garden one year ago and one year later.
This photo was taken at almost mid-garden looking toward the north. Everything was very tiny, and the elevated area in the far corner was just barely a thought in my mind.
One year later and everything is filling in nicely, and the idea for the far corner garden is on its way. More on that "secret" little space in a future post.
Now standing in about the same spot mid-garden but looking in the opposite direction (toward the south), it was pretty well planted but all very small.
One year later and it's starting to look a little more jungle-like.
At the very south corner of the garden is a view of the patio and the butterfly garden.
One year later and we've just about lost view of the wall surrounding the patio.
This area is located right next to the patio in the above photo (where the corner of the house is) and is a view of the south side of the garden.
One year later and most of the fence is covered with the exception of the gate.
It's amazing to look back and see how it has grown and filled in in just one year. A mix of warm weather, plentiful rain and no winter freezes makes for perfect growing conditions.
