We’ve been in our new house for about two and a half years now and this is the third time we’ve remodeled the garden. The main reason being we had an enormous garden at our former house and I miss it. 😦 even though a smaller less time-consuming garden was one of the reasons we moved to a new house on a small village estate. For the first couple of years it was okay we planted lots of pretty flowering shrubs and sat back and enjoyed them but then at the end of August last year we adopted Oby 🙂
The grass or should I say mud patch needed to be taken up and replaced with patio and decking.
The plants were the next project they needed to be in raised beds to combat against dogs doing what dogs do. 🙂 My clever husband created planters for my fruit trees: Plum, Cherry and Apple and raised beds for my Roses, Lilies, Lavender, Poppies and Rosemary and Thyme. I will probably paint them but for now I just plan to enjoy them.
Next on the list is extending the garden into the large driveway to give the dogs more room to play. I should point out that we live on the edge of numerous trails and a country park, again one of the reasons for moving to this location and they have plenty of places to run.
Now when I’m writing I can see the lovely flowers out of the window. I’ll leave you with a few photographs of the flowers I can see at the moment.
