Garden envy ♥

I went home to visit my parents recently and the weather was so nice I spent a lot of time in their garden. They have a gorgeous garden and my Mum takes great pride in it. It's medium sized and they've completely changed how it used to look from when they bought the house.

My Mum has created a large vegetable patch and grows carrots, runner beans, courgettes, pumpkins, and all manner of other yummy veg! She also grows strawberries which are delicious. They have 2 sheds in the garden, one is full of bikes and boxes of old stuff and the other is my Mum's potting shed in which she keeps all her tools and plant pots and gardening gloves! Both sheds have been painted a gorgeous pale green-blue turquoise colour and have been decorated with hanging baskets and shabby chic wicker hearts. The potting shed can often be found adorned in bunting, which looks so cute.

There is also an area of lawn which is framed by a border of colourful flowers, and the hedges behind the big tree in the corner has little fairy and owl statues peeking out! It's such a lovely place to spend time in and I can't wait until I have one of my own, despite my inability to look after house plants!!







Do you have a garden/like gardening?
