How does your garden grow? Like wildfire!

I’m not much of a gardener (let’s be honest, I’m not any sort of a gardener), but I do love my garden. I love looking at it through the window and I love spending time in it. The last time I wrote about my garden, spring was only just beginning and it was all new to me. Having only lived here since the start of the year, I had no idea what was going to grow and how much work the garden was going to need.

Well now the garden is growing! And it’s growing like wildfire. It is a real mix of colour – we’ve had daffodils, tulips and wallflowers, there are clematis growing, forget-me-nots everywhere, lots of pansies and lots of things I have no idea what they are.

Oh, and lots of weeds. Lots and lots of weeds. Really tall ones. The flowers and the weeds are all mixed in and, even though I know we’re going to have to get rid of them, I don’t really mind them. It gives the garden a wild, old-fashioned feel.

We’re lucky to have an old red brick wall, which has been part of the village for well over a hundreds years, and goes most of the way round the garden. It gives a rustic feel and also makes a nice backdrop to photos.

So I’m going to be uncharacteristically quiet. I’m not going to write any more. For once I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you my garden…

  1. It’s beautiful! I do love that wall, and is that a clematis growing all over it? So many pretty flowers out there, I bet you’re loving the surprises as it’s coming to life? x

    • Thanks very much, I really am loving it – great to see what appears next! There is clematis on both sides of the garden, but neither of them belong to us – they’ve both come over from neighbours’ gardens, but they’re very welcome! x

  2. Wow that is so so pretty. I love the whole array of different colours. Our entire patio is covered in determined dandelions and I’m waiting for them to turn into dandelions clocks πŸ˜€

  3. Wow that looks amazing! I would love a wild looking garden, ours is so sterile as we haven’t done anything with it yet since the winter. I need some colour in mine.

    • Thanks very much, Nikki! We haven’t done anything on ours, we’re just lucky it’s all grown nicely (although it has lots of weeds!). You’ll have to pop over and visit sometime. x
