Our Garden

The sun is still out and we have spent the weekend in the garden getting it ready for the summer. Our beds are planted up, the cushion covers have had a wash, the patio has been cleaned and I’m now on the hunt for outdoor decor to add that exra zhuzh.

This garden has taken about two years to get right. I dug out both of our beds last year but I planted a lot of cottage garden flowers then which just didn’t work for me. In the winter, the beds were very bare and I wanted to change that. My mum’s garden is a stunning and she gave me so much advice and a couple of the plants you can see here. I planted up some hydrangeas last year which I kept in my beds this year and I have added some hebes, a gorgeous rose my friend sent to us for an engagement present, weigelas, a buddleia & a couple of geraniums. We also have a clematis at the far end of the bed and a climbing rose which are both doing very well.

In my pots I have a marguerite daisy, an Anouk lavender and some erigeron. Also, I couldn’t not include this little snap of Atty – he absolutely loves this spot on our storage box. Such a cutie 🐱

Our herb garden has had a refresh for this year and we tried to plant as many herbs that flowers as possible for the bees. This wooden three-tiered planter we picked up online and it is just perfect for a small garden. In the other bed I planted up more of the same; hebes, hydrangeas, a weigela and a ceanothus. In the pot we have a wild honeysuckle which we took from Mr RV’s mum’s garden and we have planted it in memory of her 💖

Et voila! We can’t wait to spend more time out here with friends and family. All of the items have been tagged over on my Instagram so head there for more details.

Have a lovely sunny evening ☀️
