When we first purchased this home it needed a lot of landscaping. We spent the first year removing trash, debris, half dead, dead and
unwanted plant material. Every summer about this time I whine a bit about how it seems like things have not come very far. My husband always reminds me of the physical tasks we have done for the season. When the computer went down we had to reload all of our photos and came across the one above. Compared to today. We really have come a long way! I am reminded that real progress takes time and that a tree is not grown in a day.

There is certainly still a lot of work to be done and it is easy to get discouraged when the progress must be measured in years instead of weeks. I suppose what I really want to say is, stick with it!
