Then and now

Patience really is a trait I have had to learn in order to be a happy gardener but with that said, it is also amazing how quickly things take off and then change again. I'm sorting through pictures and thought I would show some snapshots of how things looked during different times throughout the past 2 years.

So if you're thinking about starting a garden this year, you may need practice in patience, but at the same time you may also find that you are amazed by how quickly things grow and change!
