The lovely Jacky had a fabulous post the other day showing us her garden, and honestly, I looked at the photos again and again, they were beautiful.
So I thought, while I was on a blogging roll, I'd share a few snaps from our garden.
Now I honestly never really thought I'd get into garden - and well even though I don't tend to do the weeding or heavy work (I leave that to hubby) I do love pottering around and growing plants from seeds. Our vegetable patch is still a work in progress, as is most of the garden, but then I think that's the beauty of gardening, its always changing.
We had a couple of trees cut down recently, which has allowed a few more plants to start growing; my hydrangea's certainly seem happier. As you can see its not a mature garden, but each year we plant another shrub with the hope that soon it will have all spaces filled.
|I certainly love my view when sitting here with my morning coffee.|
I've just planted these Cosmos out ... the ones I did a month or so ago are certainly doing well; I just hope the slugs don't attack these.
The sweetpea has been slow this year ... I've 3 of these dotted around the garden, as I just love cutting them for the house
Not sure what has happened to the silver anniversary rose that we got as a gift last year. Its flowered but very droopy. I may need to cut it down a bit.
The vegetable patch needs some TLC this weekend, but the potatoes and peas (which you can't see) are doing very well.
And finally, I'd like to introduce you to George. He has lived for as long as anyone can remember at The Little House; no one knows where Nan or Grandad got him, just that he was always there. He's been painted a great number of times over the years by Nan. So I suppose I need to give him a paint before he goes back. We bought him here, as we were worried he might get damaged by the builders.
So there you are, a little glimpse of our garden. Sorry it was picture heavy, but you know what it's like, once you start snapping, you just can't stop.
