To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly”. ~Henri Bergson
Our backyard in 2013:
This backyard has seen massive change in the past three years. .
Today, our backyard is a free place for green grass, big trees, lounge chairs, and a few neighborhood cats.
I love the space as it is now. But, I did not always feel the same. It used to be a “junkyard”. We wanted a change and it took hard work to get it.
We dismantled three shacks, discarded the junk inside each of them and opened the area to air and light.
This was our backyard in 1960 :
That is D( my husband) as a toddler.
There was only one shack in 1960. That particular shack in the photo was the biggest. We hauled out wood, metal, (rusted) tools and other assorted goodies that were saved through the years.
Be grateful for change; it opens your windows and lets you breathe!
P.S. Rouen photos are coming very soon!
