Brighten the front a bit, much needed as its depressing having a crappy front doorstep. Also got a bird feeding station which to date two blue tits have sat on (last Thursday) Hope they come back. 1 month ago
Have added a glass globe thingy dangling from under the loft bed, and last weekend I gave myself a vicious blister cleaning the deck with a broom and washing powder. My goodness it was filthy. Well worth it though. It’s now that nice silvery colour timber goes. I turned the chair to face out the back, so one can sit in the warm and look at the little view. The cat likes to sit there, so win all round. 7 months ago
Yeah, just chilling on the loft bag, nosying up the road, sun dipping round the corner to illuminate my little spot. Still feeling pretty smug about this. Have added plants, little solar power LEDs – I charge the battery bit out front in the daytime sun, as back is too shady, some dangly twirly reflective things, a little stone owl that the garden centres are full of, but so what, I like it.
In vein of recycling, I’ve put the old rocking chair out, two mirrors which fit perfectly and I have filled some ill-fated grass woven pouffe thingies, that the cat stropped to bits, with soil, awaiting a plant. 8 months ago
An old ikea loft bed frame, procrastinating the disposal thereof, had lain in back yard for months, in pieces. Much sighing and wondering how to get rid etc, and then the year’s best idea came up. Reassemble and use as a gazebo type balcony type thing.
Did it yesterday. Fits perfectly and I sat on the bean bag on the top, peeking through the bushes at people going past on the road, reading a book, and congratulating myself manifold.
Off to get some more plants to hang off it etc etc. 8 months ago
The grass strip is soo tiny out front, but overgrown. I’m loathe to chop it at the moment as I understand the weeds are good butterfly food, but it’s a bit samey. So I’ve bought some poppy and cornflower seeds so maybe they’ll sprout amongst the clover and grasses, eventually. 10 months ago
Having just got back from a last visit to the family home in France (it’s being sold in August) it was lovely to see how mature and beautiful Mum’s gardens have become. My little patch is so small, I must surely be able to get some thing going. Some annuals in pots are doing ok outside the door. Must try harder. 11 months ago
Been visiting Japan again, and took more photos this time as borrowed a better phone. Lots of pots with flowers in, outside doors. Alot of people have no garden, just a doorstep. Do they let it wither and get covered in cat hair and squashed slugs? Sometimes yes, but often no. They put a cluster of pots, not fancy ones, plastic ones often as not, but with lovely flowering bedding plants that probably have to be replaced in a couple of months. But they do it, hang the expense and fleeting nature of the bloom. They revel in that ephemeral beauty thing. They don’t see it as a waste of cash. I suppose also that their post person or other delivery individual doesnt sweep them aside with their trolley. I might not be that lucky.
I bought the plants last weekend. Not planted them yet, but it is a bit chilly out…. 13 months ago
Genius idea, no sun in the back, everything fizzles out, and I forget to water them. I’m going to go Disney on the decking’s ass. 14 months ago
Current fantasy is to have a vertical array of shade lovers in the backyard.
We have two tomato plants on the go but they are being most problematic, due to early neglect in the training area.
They have branched out like leggy green adolescents and are now too big to be tied up. Like a lot of adolescents. Pah. 22 months ago
