What A Difference 10 Years Makes!

This picture shows our house when it was built about 10 years ago. Yesterday I mentioned how fast things grow in Florida
This is what it looks like today. The most obvious difference is the size of the palm trees.
If you look closer you can also see the azaleas and other shrubs which were hardly noticeable on the original photo have grown to maturity.
Nothing new has been added in this time period.
They have been trimmed and shaped many times and are in wonderful condition.
Florida has sunshine, warmth, humidity and rain which all contribute to ideal growing conditions.

Wow! That really is a big change! It's beautiful, and I'll certainly come visit next winter for sure!

When we moved in 20 years ago we had two little palms put in that didn't reach the top of the courtyard wall- about 8'. Last year we had them removed by a backhoe and a crane because they were so tall we couldn't see the tops from anywhere in the courtyard. Looked like we had planted very long pencils!
