Every year, sometime in July, I go into the garden and stand in each of the corners and at each of the half-way points between those - like eight points of the compass - and take a photo. They are then filed alongside the previous one from the same angle so I can see just how many changes there have been.
These nine photos shows the corner which faces North East. They begin in 2007.
|2007 - built the patio and cut the border - decking in the corner|
|2008 - decking is now a summerhouse|
|2009 - we have swapped flowers to vegetables on the right|
|2010 - still vegetables and the box hedge round the patio is appearing over the edge|
|2011 - forgot to do the photos this is nearest I could find|
|2012 - last year for the veg and I am working in the summerhouse|
|2013 - looking mature at last and back to flowers all round|
|2014 - the patio gives way to the conservatory|
|2015 - maybe things have settled down now|
