Spring in our garden

It’s finally spring in our garden – hooray! 🙂 We spent a couple of days in the garden at the weekend and it was so lovely to be out there. On Friday the weather was glorious and so I did a bit of painting to brighten up our front door. It used to be white and was looking a bit grubby, so it was great to freshen it up and have a change of colour. I didn’t think Tom would go for it, but he’s really pleased with how it turned out!  Read More

Lovely new(ish) plants

I have been meaning to write a post about our garden for such a long time now! I have also been meaning to get out and do a few jobs in it, but it has been so windy recently that it makes it impossible to do the jobs that we need to do…and I also usually get distracted by the many other things I like doing! Our garden has taken a bit of a back seat this year really, mainly because we have been planning some serious building work (which still hasn’t started yet, but will hopefully over the next week or so…). We won’t be able to access the back garden for a little while as the work happens, so this meant that we didn’t plant loads of new things that would need lots of attention. And the front garden? Well, that’s for another time!  Read More

Today was an exciting day, because we planted a special tree in our garden! The reason that it is special is because Tom’s Granny bought it for us for our wedding. We knew we wanted to get a cherry blossom, and chose Incisa which is also known as ‘The Bride’, which is quite fitting! We bought online and decided to plant now so that the tree didn’t have to make it through the tough winter.  Read More
