Lou, I really like before and after pics. I was looking through mine so I'll show you. The garden in 1991, the year after we moved in. Ground has been prepared for sowing grass. Garden is big so we had help for this. But the help was disappointing as they rotovated the grass and weeds, then raked it, but loads of roots were left behind so there were horrid things like bindweed and couch grass chopped up all over it.
Second pic is in May 1994, some of the red is Sweet Williams. Roses start flowering in May here in SW France.
Third pic is June 2013. I hope they all come out in the right order. I usually have to download the last pic first.
