From rags to riches.

Hi all, Recently i have seen lots of posts on trying to cheer people up from their Winter woes, so i thought i’d add one of mine.
Firstly though i have to say that this is by far the worse Winter i have ever had to endure, either here in Devon or from my home town of Stratford upon Avon.
So here is my front garden last Winter, as you can see its completely bare.

This is early last Spring as the colours all appear.

I have drilled and plugged my window ledge so it can hold half round plastic containers (i have 10 of these) i can then fill them with seasonal flowers as they grow.

More pictures soon i hope.

It's the worst winter I can remember aswell.
You have a lovely front garden. Good idea to be able to change the flowers as the seasons progress
