So how green is your garden? Well mine is far too green! One day it was Winter and everything was dead and brown and small, then i woke up one morning and this hit me in the face:
The view up the front garden. One empty border and another that's fit to burst!
Right up the end. I tried to prune that evil yellow thing once. Not doing that again, bites through gardening gloves that thing does!
And round the corner. Told you it was big didn't I?! The conifer's need a brutal trim, but maybe not this year, costs a fortune and I'm a rotten ladder monitor when Robbie tries to do it...
Under my living room window. What is it with Poppies? They multiply like crazy! Good job I absolutely love them and have become expert at ignoring the very obvious things that don't even resemble poppies that are in with them.
This is between us and next door. No idea how poppies got that far...!
Forest Flame? Flame of the Forest? Who cares! It's gorgeous and I love it.
|Never been much of a one for plant names. No idea. Very pretty though.|
This is right round the other side where the drive is. And believe it or not there are plants in this here border. It's not all weeds y'know!
And the rest of the drive, leading to the back of the house. How rubbish would life be without trees and weeds? Not to mention the occasional flower and intentional plant of course...!
All this has done is make me realise that we really need to squeeze some gardening into our weekend routine. Just give me the weather and forget about anything else! But isn't it just so lovely and green?!
And I've been really good on the colourful skirt/dress front as well. I think the biggest part of it for me is confidence. I took the dog out in the blue dress and felt so self-conscious - until I gave myself a talking to. For goodness sake woman get a grip.
A fiver out of Primark about five years ago. Still not entirely sure if I like it... I think I do, maybe it's because it's very different from what I'm used to:
Which is this! Love when youngest buys herself a pretty jumper and decides she doesn't like it!
Be back soon!
