How time flies. We moved into our current house the day before Halloween in 2005. This is what it looked like when we moved in. All of the bushes are gone now and so are the awnings (what I referred to as eyelids). Those big bushes on either side of the steps were tied to the porch. Weird thing happened when we pulled out the bushes, my son cried when we pulled out the mini pine tree on the left of the picture. I have no idea why he was all of a sudden so attached to the mini pine tree. What I did uncover when we pulled out everything was a ton of Day Lilies. We kept those and put them on either side of the steps.
