Its that time of year, if your lucky! that the sun shines and sitting in the garden becomes much more enjoyable, now as much as I love to sit out there with a cup of tea and admire my flowers my children don’t! they want to play and be entertained by much more than a pretty flower or 2. So me and the hubby decided to make a Sandpit with a twist.
This happened this month, my little garden was featured in Modern Gardens magazine, it put a huge smile on a very tired mummy’s face. I love this Magazine (not only because I was featured in it) but because its great for all, whether your a professional or novice gardener its packed with achievable ways to make your outdoor space beautiful. I especially loved the Laid- back Garden Glamping feature, as you know I’m a little Glamping obsessed of late and I got some great fun ideas out of it, i’m definately trying the floral washing line.
I don’t have the space at home for a Summer House but that doesn’t stop me from swooning over those that do. There’s something very special about these outdoor havens, whether its a spot to have a glass of wine, a cup of tea, to read, write, play or just a place where you can look out onto your garden and relax, they’re an essential part of many peoples outdoor spaces and you can certainly see why. Through my Instagram I have come across some amazing and Inspiring accounts, four of which have kindly allowed me to share with you their Summer Houses.
This is our Pink Lady, aint she pretty!
I thought id write a short tuturial detailing how I gave her a pretty pink skirt.
When we bought our home I was a little put out when I saw the size of the back garden which is 28.5 sq metres (306 sq ft) as I had always wanted a huge garden but I loved the house so I decided that id have to get a little inventive with our outdoor space to make it work for us.
Above is how our garden looks now
