Saturday was spent clipping and cutting back the hedge / shrubs from the front of the house down to the road and what a difference it has made. It seems to have let so much more light in to the front of the house.
Sunday, I spent a little time out in the sunshine in our back garden and thought you might like to share some of the treasure I found there.
It seems to have been a good year for the roses although the rain seems to knock them down and the flowers have certainly taken a battering at times.
At the very bottom of our garden is a wild / back to nature area for the birds, and wild plants. We have lots of hazel trees down there that make a canopy with bird feeders and nesting boxes and even have a bird hide made from a small garden shed [Jo calls it our 'love shack' but all I can say is how did she know? :-) ]. It is getting to the 'I need to be cut back and sorted' stage so before it gets cleared I wondered through the wilderness and snapped all the little hidden treasures amongst the nettles.
If you click on the picture you should be able to enlarge it enough to see just what wonderful treasures you can find in nature if you just look.
Half way down our garden is a love seat that our family bought us for our silver wedding anniversary....the idea being that Hubby and I can sit on the seats and enjoy a cuppa together but our little dogs have other ideas.
The second I sit down on the one side Wispa likes to jump up and sit on the table part and Rocky sits proudly on the other seat!!!
They are such little characters.
I hope you've enjoyed the peep into our garden treasures today.
