My Little Garden
I have a tiny garden and I’m just starting to enjoy pottering about in it. This is the third garden I’ve had, the first was small but I was in my early 20’s, had a baby and a toddler and no time to do anything with it.
The second garden I had was lovely when I moved in, I bought it from someone who was a very tidy gardener. I am told he even mowed the lawn on the morning of moving day! It was on a hill and was exhausting to keep tidy. The kids were still very young, I was working long hours and I am afraid I let it go. :(
After that we lived in a flat for a while and you cannot believe how much I missed having a garden. So, now I have one again I really appreciate it! The front garden is lawn and not much else, it’s open plan with the neighbours which is something we plan to change. It’s a blank canvas and I am almost scared to start digging beds because I don’t know what to put where! The back is small and has a concrete drive for the car (which we currently don’t use). There is a small lawn, patio and beds around the edge with some badly cared for shrubs. I’ve been weeding the beds but they are full of stones and rubble so it’s a long job.
I haven’t taken any pics yet but I will add some soon. I suspect many will be of the ‘what is this and how do I stop it looking so straggly’ variety! In fact, while I’m here, anyone know how to save a lavendar that hasn’t been pruned for several years?
