Yesterday evening I went out into my backyard to take some pictures of Spring. It has come in a big way and it is breathtaking. I was just in awe of the beauty that surrounded me. But as I paused to reflect on my beautiful yard, something took my mind back 15 years ago to when it only existed as a dream in my head. So I pulled out an old scrapbook that told the story of its transformation, scanned some pictures, and because of the reminder of how it used to look, now I have a deeper appreciation of the Eden I call my backyard. Maybe you will too.
Come visit me sometime and I'll show you my yard. And we'll have lemonade.
