A Lovely Difference

This is how the front yard appeared then, a couple of decades ago.

There is a lovely difference between my gardens now compared to 25 years ago.  I remember looking out of our oversized bedroom window more than 2 decades ago, thinking how boring the view was with the flat, patchy looking lawn. And thinking that I did not want to look at the uninspiring road in front of our house every day, not to mention having the increasing traffic be able to peer into the large windows of our home.  All it took was a couple of decades of healthy labour, a lot of mistakes and a desire to create something beautiful, that I could get lost in. At that time, there was no inkling of how a garden could inspire a wide array of paintings let alone a number of garden themed exhibits!  Above and below are a couple of photos of the front yard from that era. I hope you can come to my ‘Art And a Country Garden’ event and see what a lovely difference an ever evolving  vision can make.
