But I want to share the realities of our gardening adventure, as I am sure many of you will understand the photos I am about to share with you. How easy it is to have a garden that can become untidy and look totally neglected after only a month or two of being unloved.
I did a lot of work on the front garden in the spring, it was looking lovely. I had spring flowers planted up, adding some lovely colour to the dull, cold grey skies.
I have been struggling to find time to get outside and this is the sorry state that now greets people as the come to the house.
The area I was going to put a membrane down and pots is now all weeds.
The spring flowers have died back and the planters look sad and unloved, the once well dug border still has not been planted and is now growing weeds however on a positive note there are far less weeds than before.
cinths have gone over and fallen over
I am sure I am not alone in finding it hard to keep up with the garden and wanted this to be an truthful post to show how things can look when time is not your friend.
Though on a positive note the acer is looking amazing
I am wanting to get the front garden back on track, so will get some summer plants sorted and potted up. We also have a couple of hanging baskets I would love to give a go. As always it will be trial and error with my limited knowledge but spring went well I am sure we can make summer and success too and learn from any mistakes.
So I am hoping a new post will show the front garden getting back on track.
