I mowed the lawn, yeah ok so it looks like a drunken barber’s been at it with the clippers but it’s a start. I have a feeling I’ll have to do a touch up at the weekend as well, my word that grass was sooooo very long! With that done the garden already looks better and I can start seeing it again, if you know what I mean?
I’ve edged the main flower bed and weeded that, as well as the patio. I emptied multiple pots and pruned the roses which were in desperate need, poor things they’ve been rather neglected of late.
My boys bought me Dahlias and a bucket of Chillis for Mother’s Day so I’ve planted them up as well and given them a good soak. The hose is broken which is immensely irritating but I had my trusty watering can to hand so it was all good!
I’ve decided to make a new flower bed under the apple tree but I’m thinking not to make it too formal but try to keep it more ‘cottage garden’ style…I’ve just got to find the right shade loving plants that are pretty and robust – that must mean a trip to the garden centre…Ooooh don’t mind if I do!
The garden is full of colour – the pretty deep pink camelia, pale pink tulips and lavender blue of the rosemary…not to mention the differing greens of my roses tinged with red, the lupins and irises which have tripled in size and the bright green of the Lilac tree…my garden is speaking to my soul – and I’m loving its words xx
