At the beginning of this summer we decided that we’d like to spend more time outside in our garden; though it hasn’t been as good of one as last summer, has it? We are due a heatwave this weekend, but I’m not sure whether to “yay” or “nay” as the older I get, the worse I seem to be able to cope with the heat! (And the cold, for that matter).
We bought a new patio dining set a few months ago which I absolutely love and makes a great centrepiece to our patio.
I’ve been gradually building up my plant collection and they were looking quite good and growing well; until we went on holiday at the beginning of the month and didn’t get watered, and now I’m trying to revive them! I managed to grab some more plants in the sale at our local garden centre so hopefully it will look a bit more summer garden soon. (Once I’ve pulled the weeds out too!). Garden maintenance is hard work really, when you think about it!
I have a bit of a gnome obsession growing – I currently own a unicorn, a gnome riding a unicorn, a dinosaur, a space gnome, a wizard and a diver! I’ve been trying to add a variety of other ornaments too, which I’ve recently been able to add to thanks to TJ Hughes.
Solar lighting has been on my to-buy list for quite a while so these solar powered buddha, chicken, and sheep really caught my eye. They make such pretty patterns in the evening and are ornamental during the day!
The large metal peacock is purely ornamental but it’s stunning. I really like the fact that it’s a rust proof coating too so will hopefully last for years to come.
The only way I could finish off is with a sun lounger. This one folds up small for storing easily in our garden storage box. The boys have been fighting over it already, but I’m hoping we’ll still have some nice weather when they go back to school so I can chill & read in peace!
