August 1995 - July 2009
First pic was taken a few weeks after we bought our new house. I actually did the garden design before we moved in and eventually started work about 6 months (and one baby) later, as looking at a desolate square of dust was too much to take. It was nice when the birds eventually moved in, but now my son can't sleep in the morning because of the wood-pigeons calling!
I stumbled across the "Looking Into The Past" Group a couple of weeks ago, and this is my first attempt to see how it worked out. I tried taking an actual pic of a print of the original, but it is harder than it looks to line the images up nicely, so this is a montage of three pics - the old and new garden, and my arm all Photoshopped together.
I have gathered lots of old pictures of my local area, and I'll get out and work on those when I get some time.
