Finding Land: Five Years Later

Hey, hey! It's before and after time! Four years have come and gone since we viewed this property, put in an offer and then had the offer accepted. To celebrate the anniversary, let's look at some photos - from the initial viewing in 2015 and then each year thereafter. I thought it would be fun to see the original photo along with one taken at the exact spot every year (to the best of my ability matching up photos - this year I was a little "off" in my alignment. Oh well). Many shots look quite the same, but over time I think this experiment will really illustrate the growth rate of the garden. Hopefully. Also, in the future, I may show only every other year to cut down on blog post length. This one's a doozy!

Here's an opening shot of the main garden on the 12th of October, 2019.
