Then I thought ok I could paint the fence. Yeah right. My paint was to thick and I couldn't find the paint thinner. I only had the oil based one and I needed nitro thinner.
Then I thought I could make a fire pit I wanted to make. But noup couldn't do that, also I can't go and replant tomatoes cause I don't have enough poles.
So I went to sort out some old photos. Some time ago I decided to scan all the photos I have at home and make a digital album. Some of the photos are more than 100 years old and they are in a pretty bad shape so I wanted to store them before they become unseeable.
While I was sorting the photos I came upon some photos of the garden.
Some of them were very blurry so I fixed them up a bit and thought that it would be nice to make a post about them.
I don't know exact year of the photos, but I know this was the first photo. I think it would be 1988. My parents started building the house and gardening the same year I was born.
First few years we didn't have the full size of the garden. There was a meadow between the garden and the orchard but later we started using that part too.
Next 2 photos I found should be between 1990 - 1995.
I remember there was an electricity pole inside the orchard but it was removed when I was 7 or 8 years old.
My mum had a lots of flowers inside the garden.
Also we started using cucumber net about 15 years ago and I can see one on this photo.
About 8 years ago we started using pea net and beans net. I remember I took this photo with my first digital camera but I don't remember what was planted where.
Last years picture
This year is still starting so the garden looks a bit empty. And I have to say the shadows from the trees are driving me nuts.
I also found some photos of Fuchsia
The last photo I found was a photo of the view form our balcony. 20 years ago it looked like this.
And today...well I can say there is no view any more.
The meadow next to us is abandoned and Black locust( Robinia pseudoacacia) has taken over. I hate it...it is an invasive tree that never dies, frost can't damage it( it waits till the middle of May to bloom) and I'm allergic to it's bloom.
