Making our garden pretty

Posted on

Yesterday finally really felt like the first day of summer.  We managed to spend a lot of time in the garden.  It's been a bit awkward to sit outside before in the sun as we didn't have a parasol.  Our last one flew out of the table last year in a summer storm, smashed into our window and snapped!  Oops.  I finally ordered a replacement last week, which means we can all sit outside and enjoy al fresco dining once again!  I love to sit in the sun, but the children need to be shaded when it's really shining down.  Reuben is also still crawling so needs constant watching to stop everything going in his mouth!  Things will be easier outdoors once he's toddling about.

As it felt like a perfect garden day I just had to go to the garden centre to pretty up our garden.  It feels so much better now and a delight to sit outdoors.  I mainly purchased ready made hanging baskets and pretty tall flowers for the planters.  I also planted lots of seeds in one planter that 'should' grow quickly and flower in the summer.  They're for beginners and easy to grow, so I hope they work!

Here's this year's pretty bloomin' garden:

I asked Bella which were her favourite.  She said 'That one, that one, that one...' pointing at them all! On the way home from the garden centre I told her our garden will look so lovely with the flowers.  She replied 'Daddy will like them too and I will be so pleased' !!
