Now that the seasons are definitely changing, I thought that I would post some pictures to remind myself how far we have come!
We moved into a new build in May 2010, and we started working on the garden in May 2011.
Here is my Dad helping make the first bed! He is planting our cherry tree next to the garage.
It was later joined by a morello cherry tree and this year it looked like this:
Those cherries make the best cherry gin liqueur in town :)
Here it was by the end of that summer - settling in nicely:
And here it is today. It has become a home to fish, dragonflies, water boatmen and all manner of squiggles! We are yet to attract any frogs or newts but we wait and see!
Jack soon made it his favourite spot!
So now we have a lovely patio on which to sip our gin & tonics :)
We also wanted beds at the top of the garden. We planted a eucalyptus tree, and Jack could not resist helping!
So this is what it looked like at the end of that day after much sweating and swearing....
and this is what it looks like now!
