Before and After....

This picture is from 1996. As you can see not much here. Everything you see here is gone now with the exception of that bird of paradise way in the back left corner. The nice little tangelo tree in the foreground, was removed by citrus canker eradication much to my annoyance!

This was taken in July 2008 as you can see things are growing well. Check out my 'Jamaican Red' Bananas dem growin' mon!

Here's another 1996 you can see the Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) and a Umbrella Tree (Schefflera arboricola) that were removed by me! They are both considered highly invasive.

Another 'after' taken July 2008 you can see my two mango trees and my citrus (yay!) and a lot of other things. Things are growing like a rain forest. And soon enough I'll have my own personal botanic garden.

Whoa! That is a huge change! You must have put a lot of hard work into redoing that garden!!!

Nice work. Those after shots are beautiful.

You certainly will soon have your own botanical garden. Good work! And how much more interesting it all is now than it once was. Your love of plants really shows.
