Then and Now.

flowers 1

Good Morning, you may remember in the entry entitled 'Squelchy Saturday'  I was telling you about the gravel pits that have been made into a nature reserve.  I said I wished I could find the old pictures I took back in the '80 when the paths and the planting were first done.  We were looking at some pictures the other day when I found this one so I have scanned it for you to see......scan0002

1987 do you see the tree in the front of the pictures well watch for it in this next one...................

July, 2010.Now you can see how the reserve has grown it has been a joy to watch it develop, when we first saw it we never thought it would turn out so well, and the tree, look how big it is now.

That's it for today but 'Joan's Musings' will be 5 years old at the weekend so I will return then with the birthday cake. Till then take care and get the champers on ice.  Take care Love Joan.

What a difference the years do make. It is such a beautiful place. Congrats on your 5 year anniversary.

Our marshes and army firing range has been turned into an RSPB reserve with walks and a tea house etc. It's full of wild life, i just wish i was fitter to do the walks justice.

Hi! Joan

That looks a great place to walk....interesting for you to watch it grow, and I love the trees.

I would have been 5yrs with journals in November, but had a break with ill health.
