Its that time of year, if your lucky! that the sun shines and sitting in the garden becomes much more enjoyable, now as much as I love to sit out there with a cup of tea and admire my flowers my children don’t! they want to play and be entertained by much more than a pretty flower or 2. So me and the hubby decided to make a Sandpit with a twist.
This happened this month, my little garden was featured in Modern Gardens magazine, it put a huge smile on a very tired mummy’s face. I love this Magazine (not only because I was featured in it) but because its great for all, whether your a professional or novice gardener its packed with achievable ways to make your outdoor space beautiful. I especially loved the Laid- back Garden Glamping feature, as you know I’m a little Glamping obsessed of late and I got some great fun ideas out of it, i’m definately trying the floral washing line.
I don’t have the space at home for a Summer House but that doesn’t stop me from swooning over those that do. There’s something very special about these outdoor havens, whether its a spot to have a glass of wine, a cup of tea, to read, write, play or just a place where you can look out onto your garden and relax, they’re an essential part of many peoples outdoor spaces and you can certainly see why. Through my Instagram I have come across some amazing and Inspiring accounts, four of which have kindly allowed me to share with you their Summer Houses.
I love a garden with Walls! I dont know what it is, maybe its the feeling of privacy, maybe its because walls give the illusion that its another room, or maybe and this is what im leaning towards that you can decorate those walls however you like..add shelves,hanging baskets, mirrors,vertical gardens, birdhouses,fireplaces, art! The possibilities are endless.
This is our Pink Lady, aint she pretty!
I thought id write a short tuturial detailing how I gave her a pretty pink skirt.
When we bought our home I was a little put out when I saw the size of the back garden which is 28.5 sq metres (306 sq ft) as I had always wanted a huge garden but I loved the house so I decided that id have to get a little inventive with our outdoor space to make it work for us.
Above is how our garden looks now
