I am still in the honeymoon period with the new house and find that I spend a long amount of time just staring out of windows in to the garden watching birds squabble and sing in the trees.
I know very little about gardening so it is going to be a challenge to take on a plot so big but my garden-savy Mum and Grandma have told me that it is good that we moved in when we did as we can see what comes to bloom throughout the Spring and Summer and then start making plans for next year.
Here is what is going on in the garden right now in April.
We have work to do to clear the base of these trees from shoots that have sprung up. There were four trees like this, we have managed to free two of them and have these two left to go. The trees look way better when we have trimmed these shoots down!
We have cleared a lot of weeds from this patch that is just next to the kitchen patio. My mum has planted a few off shoots from her own garden including some wild strawberries! There are already Bluebell shoots coming up around the border. We also planted a rose called Rachel for my best friend Rachel who passed away five years ago. I am really looking forward to transforming this patch into a blooming cottage garden style flower bed!
