My garden

For the first time in my life, I have a garden of my very own. Topher and I are both really excited to have some outdoor space that isn’t shared or just a concrete yard.

This is what our garden looks like now. The previous owners took great care of it, planting lots of flowers so even though it’s raining it still looks lovely. Though I can’t wait for the rain to stop so I can go out and mow the grass (I had no idea how satisfying I find that task!).

We’re going to be here for a number of years so I’ve got a few plans for our little garden.

I love the idea of having a window box full of homegrown herbs right outside the kitchen window. That would be so handy! And think of the money saved.

A truly aspirational picture. Though there’s no way this kind of garden could be mine in the UK, I can still dream right? Damn our weather.

Our shed that luckily the last people left behind could use a lick of paint. I’d love to paint it something other than brown. This shed by Sarah from A Million Dresses is awesome.

Though there’s usually only about two days a year that are BBQ friendly, I would still want a BBQ in the garden. This could be a great way to get a permanent weather proof one. My dad made one years ago so it’s definitely something I want to try. Though I would probably paint the bricks so it looks a little prettier!

Outdoor lights can transform a garden and would look amazing in the evening. These are definitely on my garden wish list. I’m just a sucker for fairy lights.
