Welcome to our Garden

We've been trying to sort out our garden for the past couple of months...

It was just put down to seed when we moved in so we had nothing to work with.

It started out like this

Right now it is like this
(You probably only see grass this green at this time of year in Ireland) :)

We're currently is sectioning off our garden to make the seat area more of a 'hideaway' ...

We finally got our little patio area finished for our seat!

And our planters arrived eventually :)

I just bought the little basket this week - I got it from T K Maxx... I found these campanulas in a garden centre & thought they would be perfect in the basket - I think they are such pretty colours!

We still have soo much to do & we don't have a plan it all just kind of happens... who knows what will appear next...

For now, it is great just to be able to enjoy it, in-between the rain showers that is!!!

Hope you enjoyed your stay :)


  1. Everything takes time. This year was the year I came to the conclusion we are not moving anytime soon so I better start planting what I have in pots. It will take a while. You have done a great job, and I love the colors you are using for your seating area. Your little doggie is just too cute! All those cute poses!! I want another dog, but it takes time to find one again.
    Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

  2. Hi Catherine,
    I really like your garden seat and your flower pots. I am so looking forward to spring I have so many ideas for our garden. Enjoy it! Creating a garden takes time but when it starts to come together it's a great feeling.

  3. Hi Catherine! Your garden looks beautiful! I love that little seating area...the perfect place to relax :)


  4. LOVE your garden! It's great to have a blank canvas to work with. When we moved in, the previous owners were real 'Ground Force' fans and had done a great job, but it isn't very child friendly and we have let it slide the past couple of years, so it needs a major overhaul to get it looking 'pretty' again! One step at a time! Have a lovely day! xxxxx
