Clever of you to have kept this photgraphic record! Makes interesting viewing and shows how the space has developed as time passed.

Stunning. It's so hard to visual when you're dealing with the little wee seedlings.

Stuart said...

It's always wondeful to look back on an area in the garden and see how it's improved over time.

Fascinating. Thankx for sharing Claire.

Watching and waiting for the 6 footer? Patience, patience; but how long will it be?!

(You've got a really good eye for design; I can see that clearly...)

Michael, it amazes me how things have grown. I am so glad to have a digital camera, not having to worry about cost of film and developing
Madcap, some of the 'wee' seedlings got so big they had to be removed! nearly all the plants were cuttings from my Dads garden.
Stuart, it does change all the time, even with all the different annuals, eventually the perenials wont leave room for them though.
Wildside, its going to be years!! it gets a good dose of manure every witner though so hopefully that'll help it along.

Fabulous.
I love to see the changes.

When I am working I fail to get the camera out.

What you said in your profile, about not having the cure for the problems in our world . . . I so feel in my heart the same as you.
If only the whole world would GARDEN, maybe we could have world peace.

Just brilliant - as always Claire.

I totally agree with your comments about the digital camera - so nice to look back and remind ourselves of our achievements.

Becky, I usually try to get picture, just to remind myself later all the hard work was worth it. I am quite content with my lot but cannot explain why to people who are seeking.
Allotment Lady, thank you, I would never have taken so many pictures if I was paying for every one!

You've done a lot of hard work and it's been well worth it. The gardens are looking lovely. Gives you a real satisfaction, doesn't it?
