Although it might not quite feel like it at the moment, what with the wet weather last week and the general loss of all sense of time during lockdown, we are literally days away from the start of Summer (measuring it by the solstice and not the Met office…did you know there were two different dates for the start of summer…)and I for one could not be happier.
Spring is my busy time in the garden – I’ve been tending seedlings, potting things up, weeding, training, watering basically all the garden-based activities you can think of that either involve getting muddy or wet has been my life for the past 4 months.
I’m really looking forward to being able to sit in the garden and admire everything as it comes into full-on fruit and flower and I know a lot of people have also been busy working on garden makeovers during lockdown and are excited to enjoy the summer months in their ‘new’ gardens.
We’re planning to add a Japanese area to our garden this year it’s going to be filled with water features, acers and ferns. I’ve already made a start on it by levelling out an old block paved area. I had to rake over the sand that was left there, add wee suppressant fabric and then have 2 bulk bags of white stones delivered so I could make it look all neat. It took me ages to do but now that it’s done it really sets the area apart from the rest of the garden. We’re going to install a corner arbour seat so that there is somewhere to sit as it’s a south-facing garden so as soon as the sun gets just partway up in the sky it’s roasting, so this will provide some much-needed shade. We’re also hoping to add a pond on there too, we can’t sink anything into the ground so it’ll have to be a pond in a pot!
What better way to enjoy your garden than on some lovely new garden furniture!
I desperately need more seating in our garden so I’m a bit disappointed that we can’t enter this giveaway but one lucky winner is going to win a gorgeous rattan garden furniture set.
