The garden has been establishing itself over the last few years with the fruit trees all starting to bear fruit and the vegetable garden settling into a routine. The orange tree I grew from seed has started to grow actual oranges which is nothing short of a miracle ... or climate change. The pergola is weathering in and is now a place to sit using hammocks or chairs. Grapevines are growing up the back corners of it and the plan is to train them across the top to create some shade.
The old driveway has been removed now that the new garage is in place around the front so the lawn extends around the side of the house creating more opportunities for garden and places to sit and enjoy the sun with some privacy. It has been nice to see the long term plans start continue.
