I found this picture of Ben and Sissy, DH's brother and sister,taken mid-1950's.
I went out and took a picture from the same perspective.
Many changes: The fence was taken down when the carport was added in 1963 and most of the present shrubs, including the camellias, were added in the next ten years. The old tractor shed was replaced after 1986. The Redbud tree planted itself about 1990.
