|July 2007 mid winter- My Acacia tree has lost its leaves but you can still see how tiny it is ,also notice the windows and stairs behind it -we where in the last year of 7 year drought|
I have been trying to make my blog as interesting and attractive as I could ,and the lovley Pamela from www.backwoodscottage.com
from Backwoods cottage was kind enough to let me know about Picasa ,now it seems that at sometime I have used this before because when I downloaded it a whole lot of photos from July 2007 where there ,so I thought I would share with you the changes that 3 years and a different season can make ,I know it would be better if the photos where the same season but I still think you'll be amazed at the growth especially my trees have experenced in a short period of time.
|January 2011- mid summer after more summer rain than I can ever remember the room behind the Acacia tree is almost completly obscured ,also take a look at the outdoor table and how small it looks next to the tree|
January 2011(ignore the date stamp I had not worked out how to change it) my house is definitley more in scale now with the surroundings and actually looks like it belongs- lavender in front,then gardenias to the right a weeping lilli pilli ,middle is the weeping cherry and to the left is a larger form of weeping lilli pilli This weeping lilli pilli is a rainforest tree native to australia they bear fruit which the early settlers made into jam.
