I’ve just finished my last basket to put near my front door. I wondered if anyone was like me, i can spend hours in my back garden just pottering around, but the front garden, i keep it looking tidy, but i dont have the same interest in it like i do my back garden.

I loved spending time in my old front garden. It was on a through road and people walking down to the village would often stop and chat. I enjoyed that, especially if the conversation was about the garden.
Now I live in a cul de sac and nobody passes. The front "garden" is just a small paved area anyway so I don't spend much time there.
I miss it.

Our ftont gardens are 'open plan' so we can't really do much with them. Mine is mostly lawn with one conifer bed. I spend very little time out there. I love my back garden and can potter there for hours. I even enjoy weeding!

Oh ! I enjoy weeding. I think I have a sadistic streek in me. I love to uproot the weeds and leave them on the surface of the ground in hot weather, until they've shrivelled all up !
