I began the project on non-rainy weekends and after work evenings in Jan 2008. I dug the hole for the pond, bought flagstone and laid the walkway and started planting some of my potted plants into the back beds.

1 week after the June 08 pictures were taken, I went to WA to do moms 'extreme garden makeover' http://cubits.org/doover/thread/view/17066/

When I got home a week after that (2 weeks after above pix) this is what I saw!

My jaw just fell on the floor! WOW is the transformation stunning! This is for sure a Do Over!!!! What a huge amount of work went into this I can't imagine, Anjl!

The lush green is so foreign to me here in Phoenix. I am in awe! Is that a freeway behind you? And you added little birdhouses to the wall??? So cute. Nice vine covering that wall too....it brings all of it into a peaceful unity.

Your flowers are growing beautifully! Can I say WOW again??? Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Hilarious! just imagine how I felt when I got home after doing moms yard! them flowers were teeny lil green patches when I left! Rolling on the floor laughing I just about had a heart attack when I got home and DH said he had a surprise for me...meaning the arbor. I didnt notice the arbor right away...probably because I couldnt see it over all them flowers! Hilarious!

Amazing--absolutely amazing! Isn't it wonderful how God used you, AnjL, to take some of His creation (the plants, vines and flowers) and turn an eyesore into an absolutely beautiful landscape, the wall included?!
