I took photos of the yard yesterday and then I came in and compared them to the photos I took last January. Wow. What a big difference.
The things that I learn from comparing the garden year to year:
- Stuff grows–It’s especially cool to see a plant in a one gallon pot one year and a full grown plant the next! (Thank you, artemesia!)
- Weather makes a difference (we had very low temps last year–lots of plant death)
- You need more plants than you think you do.
- Plant trees. (That’s not true for everyone but there seems to be a shortage of landscape trees where I live.)
