The driveway around the circular hedge. The dogwood had been planted by previous owners.
The dogwood flowering in the spring of 1993.
The back porch which was later enclosed and made into a breakfast room. The area around the dogwood tree would later become our herb and vegetable garden.
More fruit trees in the front lawn and south side of the house. The cherry tree on the left would later become the victim of a severe ice storm.
