so i thought to cheer myself up i would post some piccies of my little tiny yard, some i took a few days ago when the sun made a cameo appearance for the season!!..
i have totally disregarded the house over the past few weeks. and its all been about the garden!.. now when i say garden that is me using a touch of poetic license as its a very small l'shaped yard ..buts its my little space and its somewhere that i find myself wandering up and down drinking the first cup of coffee in the morning ..checking on each floral progress and dodging the slugs to!!
these pretty bedding plants always remind me of ladies faces with little bonnets on!!
a little bit of bunting that i made from cath kidston samples Ive had for ages.. don't look to closely though the sewing is shocking.. i blame my machine though not me!!!
a little sun trap for me
some home made candle holders using empty coffee jars and various stickers!.. still waiting for a balmy evening to light them though!!
a nice bit of chick lit to pass the afternoon.. this one "meet me at the cupcake cafe" immediately made me want to abandon my diet ( which i did!) due to the gorgeous cake recipes found within the pages .. and also open up my own little shabby chic shop ( which i haven't because I'm poor!!)
a sweet pea .. that i bought for about 10p in the woopsie section of homebase!
some old and some new hydrangea's
some impatiens ( are these busy lizzies?? ) .. in my vintage enamel bowl..
my little corridor of happiness.. that i stand in my french doors like a loon and just stare out at.. the people at the back of me must think I'm some sort of crazy stalker just staring into space but i do get a bit of joy just looking!! ( At the flowers not the neighbours right!)
Sweet Williams and trailing geraniums
love my little blue planter from B&M's..really emphasises the pink of the geraniums i think
a mish mash of bedding plants and stuff that should come back next year .. ( here's hoping the snow doesn't have its own agenda!)
lovely blue delphiniums.. again bought in the bargain bit of homebase.. i gave it a good home and its seemed to have flourished..!!
so there you have it .. a mini tour around a mini garden, I'm no Percy Thrower but i do get enjoyment from choosing plants that have colour.I'm going to try and incorporate a few climbers this year so that i can benefit more next year.. what ever the case Ive enjoyed so far. will have to think about my autumn garden now!!
