13 Months Later...(Before and After)

One thing about before and after photos is that you can see the progress that has been made AND the progress that NEEDS to be made.

November 4, 2008---
After having pulled chest muscles, inflammation in my chest wall, two cortisone shots in my right elbow for tendonitis, diagnosed with pinched nerves on both sides of my neck , a tetanus shot for dropping a garden tool on my toe......a wonderfully strong husband and seeing way too many snakes...



13 months later --December 3, 2009
(the car at the bottom of the hill is our downstairs apartment where the girls Grandfather lives)
There are countless number of seeds sprouting throughout this area....
Spring bulbs waiting for just the right time to peek up from their long nap.
We've come a long way baby! What changes or additions will be made this next year?
Thank you Colleen over at http://cmchwms.blogspot.com for this award!

What a transformation. It is so beautiful Darla. It certainly is something to be proud of. I sure hope that I can post a photo like that this coming spring.

I think you deserve that award for all the things you have pulled in your hard work Darla.

For all your injuries it sure was worth it! Now I hope you will try to rest a little and not start any new projects until your elbow is fully healed. Somehow I doubt that will happen :) It looks great!

You can really see a big difference Darla. I love your new beds with the rocks.
I bet you are anxious to see it in the spring.

Hi Darla~~ Nice!! The lattice fencing makes a huge difference. And of course the plant growth is amazing. The stones, I love stones in the garden, look great too.
