A little look around my garden

18 comments


Which has a lot of different shades of green in it but I like it the photo’s are of my front garden which some of you will remember I call it it a mish mash the back garden looks the same most of the year with evergreens . I have found a little comfort in it at the moment but i’am still sad my hubby who passed away last November is not around to see it flourish don’t want to be to sad about my life at the moment and will only say that the pink poppy is the last plant he put in for me 4weeks before he passed away and the hedge he planted between us and next door for privacy about a year ago has taken off and done as he said it would .gardens big or small are wonderful spaces and it looks and feels like summer today so Enjoy !!!
Ps sorry I think I may have duplicated some photos and don’t know how to delete them (senior moment )

Your garden is lovely. I'm sorry there's an empty feel there for you at the moment. I hope as time passes, that you'll be able to cope with it.
It's nice that some of your plants have a connection with your husband. Part of him will always be there :)
You've got a great view !

Hi K'gran, its natural to have your moments and being in the garden that you both shared is going to bring forth lots of memories, I'm pleased its bringing you a little comfort, the poppy is lovely as is the rest of your garden, it must be grand relaxing with a cuppa looking out at that view, we've also been having some lovely weather this week, turned a bit cooler today but thats far more comfortable to work in.
Lovely photo's, you take care..xx

I love your garden Kidsgran. All the plants look so healthy and vigorous. Those poppies are glorious and I like how you have those pretty chives in buckets. The Clematis is a beauty and you have some beautiful borders too overlooking a great view. As I said I just love your garden and how you have put it all together. Lovely blog.

How lovely to have built this garden with your beloved husband. Memories are good to build on for the future. It is a garden full of lovely plants and beautifully laid out. I'm sure it must have been a comfort to him to know that you would go on enjoying this space and I'm sure as time passes you will make new memories of it. Those poppies are gorgeous. I am away from home at the moment and hope to get home in time to see mine in flower.

It certainly is a delightful garden. I hope that it will bring you many hours of peace and contentment there plus many very happy memories of a joint venture made by the two of you.

He would feel so very proud of you and what you have achieved.

So many of us on here have lost loved ones, so you will have lots of understanding here.
