Sleep, creep, leap
The front yard has never looked better, and so I thought I'd take a little "after" picture and compare it to the "before" pic, taken after we'd first finished landscaping. The first pic was taken Spring 2013, and the most recent one was taken today, almost exactly two years later.
It's amazing how fast shrubs grow. The trees are still on the small side, but now that they have spent a couple of years putting down roots, will probably start growing in height very soon. How does the saying about tree growth go? "Year One, trees sleep. Year Two, they creep. Year Three, they leap." This next year should be a "Leap Year," I hope so anyway. But no matter what, it is nice to see some greenery and growth when we look out our front windows.
