Welcome to my back garden!
Today my Show and Tell is about my back garden, which due to some wonderful recent warm weather, I have spent much more time in than usual.
Last year we had a starlings nest…
I love to watch them, and despite appearances of being very relaxed, our cat George loves watching them too!
Last week you saw my clothes line, and in the background the playhouse. I thought I would share some more images from our back garden.
My Dad needs to get all the credit for anything that grows and flourishes in our garden, apart from the weeds. He visits regularly to treat the lawn, cut back and trims, neatens the edges of the flower beds, and generally rescues the things we have neglected!
I recently blogged about an idea of how to use hyderangea blooms to make a bouquet. Finally, the first signs of colour are appearing on our blue hyderangea.
When we moved here 10 years ago, there was nothing but grass and a rather ugly wall. Now it is a lovely sheltered sunny spot.
We call it our back garden, and front garden. I realize many other countries call their outside space a yard. To us a yard is a more practical space, probably covered in cement, and more likely to be found at a farm or a business. So do you have a garden/yard/outside space? Let me know!
I am also sharing this post over at Hooked on Houses, as I am hooked on my back garden, especially in unexpected gorgeous weather.
This post is also linked to The Inspired Room and her Beautiful Life series, and there was definitely beauty to be found in our garden this week.
Please excuse the weird blue box up beside my header – I am rearranging the “furniture” and it is a work in progress!
