A poke around my garden...

The journey around the not so perfect garden begins....

It really is easy, (and I guess somewhat more enjoyable) to share photos of a beautiful flowering garden. In its prime, looking perfectly put together and all lush and green during Spring.
Well I have to say while I love looking at those gardens for inspiration I do get a little overwhelmed, "why doesn't mine look like that?" is usually the first thought that comes to mind, and do I say it (Jealous!)
My yard is not the prettiest thing to look at in the winter months. In fact everything looks depressing, drab and dead, (after the freeze we had this year, I think most of it may be!)

One thing I love doing is sharing my garden with others. So I have decided I am going to spend the next few weeks/months blogging about it's transformation, from the pretty to the down right ugly. Its time for this garden to turn from a caterpillar into a butterfly, time for some gardening intervention and TLC!
Hope you follow me on this learning journey, though all the many highs, lows and crazy discoveries along the way!
Also, any advice, tips and encouragement will be greatly appreciated...thanks :)

Next post... Welcome to my garden (yes it's a garden!)

  1. I'm looking forward to seeing your garden come back to life this year. Mine looks pretty dead and stickish right now. I'm not very good about buying things that add a lot of winter interest. I like seeing the flowers, and during summer I'm not thinking about how it will look in winter. I'm wondering how the cold will affect my garden too, it's supposed to get pretty cold again this week and so much is beginning to sprout.

  2. I am in one boat with you. My garden also is not pretty right now. Well, spring will come soon, then summer, and we'll have our moment!


Thanks for stopping by and reading my latest post! I love sharing my gardening adventures and reading your wonderful comments. Happy digging...Cheers Julia!!
