Lisa (aka Shabby Girl) wondered in a comment on my post Settling In at the beginning of the month after I arrived back in New Zealand what The Cottage looked like. I hadn't shown you this year so I'm now rectifying that and doing a bit of comparison.
The Cottage arrived on site in October 2007. Is it really that recent? I seem to have lived here for years.
The the landscaping started in November: The Landscaping Begins.
By 2008 the transformation was amazing and I posted The Homestead.
Last year I posted I've Arrived: What Now?
This year the lavender in front of The Cottage has grown and been cut back but some bushes have been lost and even though I replaced them last year they have refused to grow in that spot. I'll have to think about that one.
