What happens when you let stuff grow!

When we bought our summer house in Gloucester in 1978 it was pretty barren in front. 25 years of letting trees grow up and letting flowers wild and tame grow made quite a change.

I'm bringing this picture to my Library Design Advisory Committee meeting tonight whose main subject is the landscaping/park scheme to illustrate the difference between plans and (action). There is a similar problem today since the trees in front of the old building which weren't there when it was built obscure much of it.
