All you have to do is share why you love your garden.
Well for me, I do love my garden, but initially only seeing our house as a stop-gap I didn’t spend as much time investing in the garden as I had at my previous house. My previous garden was landscaped from a bare square patch of grass to include a weatherstone patio, circular lawn with shrubs and plants around it and a circular top patio. We got sun ALL DAY long and weren’t overlooked. It was beautiful. We practically lived in our back garden and had some great get together’s with friends. I LOVED that garden.
My current garden is nice, but needs work and after deciding we are going to stay put a little longer we are gradually starting to invest more time in it (not that we hadn’t done anything initially) we are now just thinking of making bigger changes, such as removing an old water feature that was put in by the present owner and extending the patio.
In the early summer we got in March I visited a local garden centre and stocked up on more plants and really overhauled it after the it had been neglected somewhat over the cold winter months. I have to say it is really starting to look colourful and a whole lot improved already.
We had some time off in May and were lucky enought to get the red hot beautiful weather again! We bought our little girl a sand and water table to go with her slide and as the weather was beautiful we once again lived in the back garden for most of the day as you will see by my photos we had great fun.
The icing on the cake to our summer “Great Garden Moments” would be a fab patio set to replace my rickety one so we can sit as a family and really enjoy outdoor living… well my entry is in now for the “Great Garden Moments Competition”… now all I can do is hope!
Happy Summer one and all
