Our house in a year

Last year me and Markus moved from a flat in an apartment building to a small row house, and it was in the beginning of September which means we’ve lived in that house for a whole year now. :)

I thought it would be fun to compare so I actually made a little project out of photographing the house every now and then over the months:

We moved in on September the 1st. Notice the pretty flowerbeds the previous tennant had arranged.

Can you see the dog? The ground was still hard and cold so I dragged his bed outside.
Spoiled creature. :P

My house - June 23 2013
June 2013
Notice the considerably less pretty flowerbed..? I didn’t know what to plant and then I waited too long and ended up not planting anything and it’s totally not my fault. I’ve never had a flower bed before, it’s intimidating dammit! :(

My house - Aug 28 2013
August 2013
Because I was too busy being on vacation to photograph the house I missed July. :| But it looked pretty much the same as June.

And we’re back at autumn. <3The difference between living on the 3d floor with just a small balcony and living in a house with your own garden is huge. I'm so happy we moved, this place is perfect for us. I hope the next time we move it will be to a bigger house that we own ourselves, but that is probably a few years away.

    That was a fun blog! Maybe you should research gardening so you will be ready for next spring.

    Next spring you should plant some perennials so you don’t have to worry about choosing what to plant each year. Get some low maintenance ones like bleeding hearts or day lilies.

    That is so awesome to see how it has changed through all the seasons, I really love it and the amount of snow is incredible! Time really flies! :love:

    This was such a cute idea! I totally want to do something like this. I love to see the little changes. You guys have the snow sticking around way too long, just like us. Ick.

    Looks so peaceful and heavenly, not to mention the fact that it has all four seasons. BTW, thank you for the detailed and honest response you sent me. It was really helpful. :)

    I love this. :love: Such a gorgeous home, so warm and inviting lately.

    Note: in my last comment I meant and lovely*. Not lately, bahaha.

    This was such a lovely post! It is always nice to see how places change over time. I agree with Erica, in that perennials would be a lovely idea. There are so many pretty ones – I personally love anything with coloured leaves. :D

    I love that you took a photo every month! It’s awesome to see the season changes through your photos :) My favorites are October 2012 and February 2013. The colors are so pretty in autumn, and the snowman is cute. I wish I had done this for the first year of my house!

    Älskar sådana där bilder, där man ser årstidernas växling.
