Why hello Sunshine, it’s been a while since we last saw you here! I am really hoping you’ve come to stay for the holidays but please stay a little longer after so I can get to enjoy you properly, you see I’ve started making plans and you need to stay or they will remain in my head and may never materialise.
My plans are for my garden area. After being stuck indoors following my Caesarean Section it has left me hankering to spend time out there, I already began by planting our spring bulbs with Joshua’s help in our lovely Lechuza pots and only this week we planted some indoors plants. As you can see from Joshua’s face he really did enjoy helping me and I think now the warmer weather is here it maybe time to transform a small section of the garden to add some colour, and perhaps vegetables or fruits which we can tend to and then of course enjoy.
We have made a small start to grown our own fruits and vegetables as we have ordered some blueberry bushes from an online shop and since Joshua could pick his own we may have to watch him carefully while these are still growing and not quite ripe!
I am thinking we might have to invest in buying some Strawberry plants too since Joshua loved Strawberry picking a while ago and I have seen some super cool towering pot plants in Homebase while wandering last week which would be great for Strawberries.
My other plans are to brighten up our fencing area, as I don’t want to use up too much grassy area, there still needs to be room for football! While chatting with a friend about the new slimline aluminium bifold doors she was is having fitted in a few weeks it made me remember a few Pinterest projects I had seen during the night feeds as you come up with these bright ideas for changing things around – surely that’s not only me at 3am?
Anyway, the projects used old bifolding doors attached to the fence with plant posts attached. I really love this idea as a quick and easy way of adding a touch of colour to the garden without spending a fortune or requiring too much effort. I’ve pinned a few of the ones I love and can see this being my Summer project, with a little sourcing I’m sure second-hand ones can be picked up cheaply, a few tester pots of paint and some plant pots it shouldn’t take too long and looks great too.
Take a look – what do you think? Now the next question really should be which plants do I start picking out ready?
