The Before in “Before and After”

My neighbor Christine gave me these photographs a day or two ago. She took them in March after Seattle Parks Department staff cut down most of the blackberry vines on the Greenbelt lots we are restoring. I look forward to using it as a “Before” photo in November after we’ve cleared the land and planted new trees, shrubs and ground covers. And I also look forward to comparing them with the photos we will take every spring, summer, fall and winter from now on.

This one will also become a good “Before” shot.

    1. We’ve seen four different butterflies, one of them four different times. Ananya also had a mole stick his head out of the hole and look at her and yesterday I saw a rabbit. And there are so many birds. This is when practically everything is barren land. Beginning to imagine what it will be like when there are flowering plants and berries.

      1. Turning it back to what it should be, that is a lovely thought! Ever since the city here cleaned up the thicket behind our building, I no longer see butterflies or bees…it is not fun walking there anymore…so sterile.
