City living is great for a lot of reasons. I know I love it compared to small town life. Most cities are exciting places to be. You can pop out for a coffee, or a meal, whenever you fancy. You never have to miss out because the bus times were wrong, or you had no way of getting there. Plus points aside (and, honestly, there are a lot of them!) there are some not so great things. Sometimes, city living can get on top of you. We all need peace and quiet sometimes. And, something that’s a particular problem when the sun starts shining; outside space can be hard to come by. I know this at the moment, especially as sometimes when the sun comes out I miss my garden!
The springtime is on its way – hopefully sooner rather than later as far as I’m concerned. It’s time to start thinking about getting the garden ready for summer and we’re hoping to have some BBQs and summer parties, weather obviously permitting. Fingers crossed for an amazing summer! Here’s four things you need to be doing in March to get a fab garden for the summertime.
I can’t say that I spend a lot of time outside in the winter. But just because I don’t use my garden as much, it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t look good. Even if we’re not sitting outside admiring it, it’s lovely to see the house all glowing. Having said that, I’m not the sort of person who wants to cover the whole house in Christmas lights. Here are some of my ideas for classy winter garden decoration, without an animatronic Santa in sight!
Since having my garden totally revamped and redesigned all I’ve been looking at is fancy garden furniture and wondering whether I should water my plants every 5 minutes. Drawing inspiration from Caribbean Blind’s amazing Outdoor Living Pods and some warm neutral colours to create a calming and harmonious outside space I’ve put together a little luxury (i.e in my dreams) wishlist of some lovely garden pieces. Check out the crazy Outdoor Living Pods below, they’re so cool!
Over the past 8 weeks, Luke and his dad have been working hard every weekend on our garden to get it ready for the summer. Those of you that follow the blog might know that this our second house in a year but that’s a long story best saved!
As the weather starts to pick up, I thought it’d be nice to share some of the work we’ve done and also share some of our garden inspo and the things we really want for it!
