Images from my garden

What have I been up to lately? Learning to bake sourdough bread, discovering the joys of board games and making a start on doing up the garden. 

Here's what I've managed so far, using a lot of stuff I found out there (salvaged brick, an old stump, some flower pots I brought from the flat). 

It takes a lot to fill a garden, but only a little to start to make it feel welcoming. This is just the beginning -- the shed arrives next week -- and I'm going to paint it like a beach hut!

Old flower pots, old bricks and pansies 

Classy owl wall art

Brand new grow tables (ignore the junk, that's going)

a £2 watering can

Faery altar from found stump and stones (that's our leftover Yule tree)

    1. I am completely in love with this shade of very hot pink on this shed, for example:

    2. It's either that or this lime green with purple trim and red door:

    1. It's really enjoyable. I like having such a small space (in comparison to the American 'yards' I used to have) -- it makes it feel much more doable, and really, you don't need more than just a patch. :)

  4. Love the park bench and all of the pretty flowers. The owl is rather cute too

    1. All the flowers have given up the ghost -- being winter flowers. Now I need to either get new bedding plants for summer or just not bother. Hm.
