When my family moved into this house in 2000, I wouldn't call the garden a garden but rather a junk yard as the pictures show.
With a whole decade of work and many days of my teenage years spent helping my father turn this junkyard into something special that I wouldn't personally give away with ease.

Everything from the poppies was taken this year, as well as the ones labeled.
The poppys appeared out of nowhere along with the potatoes I dug whilst make the pool.
We've got apples, pears and walnuts growing too! We even had grapes growing though the concrete floor of out house!
