We've Come A Long Way

One thing about blogging about our happenings here is that you get to look back and see how far you've come. It seems like from a day to day basis that we are always in an uphill battle trying to undertake a huge project or fix something that's come up. I've been looking through some older pictures and here is what I found.

Fall 2008 

Spring 2011

Of course we are still working to finish out many of the areas, like in front of the shed, under the willow tree and also build an arbor for the wisteria to grow over. Its all time, money and materials. It does encourage me to see photos like this. The willow tree has really grown and our field of a backyard is feeling more cozy and useful. We are hoping to replace more of the lawn with raised beds as time goes.


  1. Wow. I desperately need you to come to my house! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks Tia. The property we moved onto was a blank slate. It was a former cotton field - flat and zero trees except for 3 that line the edge of our property. Its been a battle to build shade and a yard at the same time. Craziness. I'm thankful to finally start to see progress!

  3. You've come a long way. My spouse and I have an appreciation for how much hard work you've put into this. Thank you for sharing!

  4. @bookworm - Thanks. You must be fellow DIYers like us. We enjoy it even though it is hard work and takes quite a bit of time. There is always plenty to do around here.

  5. Before and After pictures are so encouraging. It looks great!
