Shatter your illusion of the perfect garden

When we bought this house our garden did not have much to offer but mud. It had no flowers, no lawn and no trees.

We´ve worked hard on restoring it, but it takes time. A tree does not grow all that much in 4 years. People who know me know I have little patience. I want thing done yesterday! But my garden forces me to set that aside.

With the risk of sounding a bit corny I have to say that when I´m outside I ´m on a vacation from my impatience self. Small steps like pulling some weed or dividing a big plant into several small ones gives me great satisfaction.

Like in the picture above: The two plants in the baskets are rescued from a weed infested flowed bed in our garden. I myself planted them a few years back and then I just let mother nature have her way with them. And O´boy did she do a terrible job and they nearly died from all the weed attacks. Now they are back to where they started: in pots.

See that crap filled shed in the back? Well I guess I would see it too if I wasn’t busy enjoy my garden.

    Nice! Jag saknar att ha en plats att gå ut på som bara är min.. Jag har spenderat de senaste veckorna med att gräva och plantera i mina svärföräldrars trädgård men det gör det liksom inte för mig längre:( Njut nu och tack för att du delar med dig, får nästan mer ut av att titta på bilder på andras trädgårdar än att gräva i dem..:)

    Thanks monstercirkus. Glad you found us.

    Sofia PR:
    Tack.
    Jag tycker om att “göra nått” när jag e ute, om det så bara är att sitta och dra lite ogräs samtidigt som jag dricker kaffe så gillar jag det bättre än att sitta i en park och prata.
    Jag behöver nått fysiskt-ute för att rensa mitt huvud ibland.
