Re-landscaping Phase One

There has to be a beginning to this story. And, here it is:
This picture was taken in November, 1978.  We were living in an RV while building most of this house ourselves.  The black dirt in front looks good.  Dan remembers we got it from the pasture where we built a small pond.

A landscaping company in Topeka made a plan for free if we purchased our plants from them.  It wasn't too original, but the price was right.  This picture was taken last year.  Definitely the 37-year-old plants are overgrown.  Obviously the dirt has settled around the house as well.

So, last Christmas, we said goodbye.  Dan said he would not miss treating the cedars for bag worms.  I will not miss pruning.
