it's getting there!

Do you remember this picture from last summer of the new flowerbed I had just finished digging in our garden? It is now a year later and it looks like this! This is the first summer that our garden has felt like a garden to me, and I have spent quite a lot of evenings watering it in this hot weather. It makes such a difference to have an outside space that is nice to spend time in. : )

It's pretty. An outside space sure makes summer more enjoyable.

Lovely! Mornings and evenings in the garden make my summer :)

What a BEAUTIFUL garden you have made Pic. I just LOVE my garden so much, and think I might spend some time out there today, despite the mid winter cold. Actually it's not going to be too bad - 12 degrees I think. It's amazing how many flowers I still have in the winter, but nothing like your beautiful summer ones. Well done!

It's beautiful :P I really love it and I seriously wish that some of the flowers there would bloom in mine :) Enjoy your beautiful summer.

What a difference - this is my idea of the perfect garden planting scheme! Enjoy!

It looks lovely Jane! Ours is starting to grow out of control. I do hope you've had your lovely garden sofa out :)

That's gorgeous! It's come a long way for only a year! The problem I'm currently having with my garden is that I want it all to happen now! I'm not very good at waiting for things to grow...

Wow, that is so beautiful. I am very impressed...I can't grow anything and if I do it only stays alive for days. This looks like a lot of work but definitely worth it.
