It's that time of year when we can go back outside, start cutting the lawns again and planting our seeds. I'm a swine for keep moving things around, once I had cut my lawns I moved my vegetable beds altogether and put in some onions that my kind old neighbour had given me. While on the nature trail one Friday, Myself and Maria had picked some wild garlic roots, so I planted them in a shady part of my garden by the greenhouse, and they are starting bud. Fingers crossed that my strawberries come again this year, I had a lovely bunch last year, the bleeding neighbours kids enjoyed them too.
But dears, you don’t just have to use your garden to grow some fruit and veg, I've designed a lovely little cottage garden at the far back. I made a small stone path leading to a secret patio area next to my pond, a nice quiet place where one can enjoy a pot of tea and crossword puzzle. I'm blessed to have such a large garden to do lots of things in, but you can still be creative even with a small space. Why not get some hanging baskets and fill with some flowers or even strawberries or perhaps a couple of window boxes filled with mixed herbs. Some sweet peas would look and smell lovely too. The possibilities are endless and pottering around in the garden can be so therapeutic and very rewarding.
