I saw this old photo of our middle patio a few days ago and thought, eek! Look how lush, leafy, and private this area used to be....
|How it was in September 2012|
|Crikey, like we just moved in and have only started doing up the garden...|
This area is rather private anyway even without the plants but it would be nicer if the views of our neighbours shed roofs are obscured and fences blended away like it was before. At least old photos of our garden will serve as our guide as we work towards restoring and repairing it to how it was before. Not to be an exact copy of course but at least replicate the sense of privacy the area used to have, eventhough the area is private irregardless.
|The road to recovery starts by removing mess and clutter|
|Voila! Clutter gone!|
I wonder myself how much lushness we will be able to restore this year. I'm pretty confident we can most it even if we have to use more annuals than usual this to fill in the gaps whilst the more permanent plants fill up.
