Before and after
Other than the front porch, a few things are different. The leaves on the crabapple tree are no longer wilted and curled; it looks like we finally got rid of the apple scab that caused the leaves to wither and die off after the tree blossomed.
You can see a lot of the plants that we put in last year starting to come up. I wish I'd taken a photo a few weeks ago when all the daffodils were out. It was beautiful. The spice bush just left of the porch is filling in nicely, and the pagoda dogwood at the far left of the picture is doing well too. MizBubs can actually remember the names of all these plants, so if you got questions you're better off asking her. And, while the lawn may be patchy, it's not totally overrun with creeping charlie and dandelions like it was last year. It's all a work in progress.
