Garden Plans 2016..

I love my little garden.

I especially notice how much I loved it when you can not go out in it as its too cold throughout Winter. This year I am planning a makeover on the garden.

Everything happened at the end of last year.

I have no flowers.

Mollie the Collie dug holes all over and although I have filled them in with soil, it has bold patches.

The shed’s makeover needs finishing off.

The outside table went rusty and the lawn mover broke!

Here are a few of my garden plans:

1.) Grass Seeds Need Laying:

Oh my, plenty of grass seeds need laying here.

I love having that bit of grass full of grass in the garden, or what is the point?

Also,  having a girl dog means there is plenty of patches on the grass.

2.) Finish The Shed Makeover:

Ha, half a  job Claire my kids call me!!

My shed is half painted and the other half is desperately in need of painting.

Any takers?

Ohno. Me it is then!!

3.) Dig Out:

Dig out some wide borders, where the grass grows over the path and also make way for some a nice flower bed.

4.) Plant, Plant Plant:

Plant lots of flowers. I mean, lots of pretty flowers. I love flowers!

5.) Add Lots Of Colour:

Not only plant lots of flowers, plant lots of colourful flowers to bring some life back into my garden.

Make my garden a pleasure to sit it.

Somewhere to sit and appreciate nature.

6.) Somewhere Nice To Sit And Read:

Buy a nice new table and chairs. Somewhere nice to eat. Somewhere nice to talk. Somewhere nice to sit and chill. Somewhere nice to read. 

 7.) Afternoon Tea:

Plan more afternoon meals outside. Afternoon tea kids. What a lovely idea!?

8.) I Never Promised You A Rose Garden:

Grow some pink and red roses. I adore roses.A garden full of roses would be amazing. 

9.) Drink Anyone?

Plan some family fun afternoon drinks outside. Inthe beautiful sunshine, would be just perfect.

10.) Put Another Shrimp On The Barbecue:

Get the BBQ out of the shed, give it a clean and start using it. Love cooking on the BBQ.

Did someone mention parties?

Summer parties, how much fun?

Make it somewhere fun to relax…

What are you garden plans this year?

    Looks lovely already! We need to get out and enjoy our outdoor space more often too…it seems like we only do when we're throwing a party or having people over!
