How did my garden grow?

I took these pictures over a number of years as our garden progressed from empty site to where it is today.

Most (no, actually all) of the work was done by my husband - so this is a tribute to him!

"Sanctuary" is the word that comes to mind. The craftmanship - esp on the shed details is wonderful! Thank you for letting me have lemonade in your garden!
