Above – taken in 2002
The top, older photo shows the new fence that Paul made by hand. We designed it ourselves and he built it in the back yard and installed it on the property line. You can hardly see it any more due to the beautiful azaleas and other shrubs and trees we put over there.
Again: Top: 2002 and Bottom: 2010
What a difference 8 years makes. Almost the same view. Those holly bushes in the 1st 3 photos were just babies, I put in 5 of them and I never thought they would grow up so beautifully.
In the second two photos, look at how tiny the crabapple tree was on the right side of the yard and now look how big it’s gotten. Same with the hawthorne tree in the 1st 3 photos. It was so tiny back in 2002, and now it is reaching for the sky. It’s been 2 years since the newer photos, too, so things are even larger now.

Watching the ballgame right now. I was going to do an entry about Paul lobstering, but I want to watch the game (we are ahead of the Cleveland Indians 5-1).
Have a good Mother’s Day!

“Our entry to it is naked and bare;
Our journey through it is trouble and care;
Our exit from it is who-knows-where;
So if we’re all right here, we’re all right there.”
