Sparks are flying around the blogosphere again today, as we join in with Alyce, At Home With Books, to showcase our Saturday Snapshots.

This week, I sifted through some more photos and found another theme that sparked my interest.

These shots showcase a story about a house.  Back in the late 1960s, we bought a new house that needed landscaping, etc.

Here are some photos of the beginning stages, including a shot of my oldest son, the “helper,” in the foreground.

And here’s a glimpse after the lawn and tree have been planted.

And now, skip ahead a little more than twenty years later.  We, of course, no longer owned the house, but my kids always enjoyed driving by the houses where we once lived.  We almost didn’t recognize this one, so I had to snap a photo.

And so now you’ve seen this true “Before and After” scenario.

I love that tree and its growth!

Now…what stories are the rest of you sharing today?  I can’t wait to see!
