    Backyard Pics one year apart

    Other threads of what you plan on doing to your backyard this year got me to go back through my old pics from last year. The bottom pic is exactly 1 year 4 days apart from the middle one. We have only been here 15 months and went through a deep freeze and then a 8 month drought in 2011. 2012 was much milder and wet. Our goal for this year for the yard is to add outdoor low voltage up lighting around the palm trees. I enjoy looking at pictures of other people yards/pools to get ideas so I hope everyone enjoys our pics. -Flip

    Looking good! The plants appear to be coming in nicely! Is that a golf course behind your house? If so, I'm jealous!!

    I'm guessing it is a golf course with the open fence like that. Love the palm tree by the pool it makes it appear tropical

    The web site posts the photos in the reverse order of how you attach them.

    For a minute I thought you killed the palm trees :/

    I had to baby the palm trees last year. When we moved in they had two 18 foot stumps of dead queen palms I had to cut out. I was afraid that we were going to loose one or two more with the freeze in Jan/Feb 2011. Two back to back years of deep hard freezes was not good for the palms. I am just glad that this year was mild.

    Thanks. Yeah we live on a golf course. I don't play golf, but I do like to watch the golfers and enjoy the view. The only draw back is the house does get hit every now and then with a golf ball.
