our little corner...

Good morning everyone...wow I'm loving this weather so much aren't you...there's something about sunshine that makes everything seem better and manages to make you feel loads better even if your not, did that make any sense at all lol...my lovely Dad is home from travels, so its out for not 'put the world to rights' coffee today but 'how was your holidays' one instead.  Have any of you been away this year yet, I would love to know where...I have so missed going away this year but we plan to make next year a good one if all the operations etc go to plan that is...I'm still waiting for my MRI appointment so don't know when yet...right as promised here's some photos of our little bit of heaven...the first one is looking out of the doors down the whole garden, its a lot longer than it looks and keep in mind we have only really done the deck so far...the eating area still need plants and the barbecue put in then we have to move onto the corner patio at the bottom


that's going to have a couple of seats, a small table, a tree and some larger plants on it to make it a sitting area for the last of the sun of the day and of course the next big thing is to get rid of that awful blue fence, I don't think it makes a good framework colour, do you?...the next photo is my favourite area where the swing seat is...wow have you seen that amazing hanging basket...seriously it is massive, not a bad effort for Phil's first basket is it...do you see what I mean about the lavender/purple colour co-ordination of the corner flowers (that's the crafter in me coming out lol)...Phils tomatoes are just in the corner beside the swing seat...wish they would hurry up and fruit Im dying to taste them


the last photo is of the other sitting area...I love that palm don't you and the colour of the seat is perfect but will work a lot better when the fence is painted I think...there are loads of other plants etc I could have shown you but I'm sure I have bored all you non gardeners enough lol...I'm going to take the next couple of days off to try and do some catching up but will be back bright and early with a make on Monday morning, now Im off to put the war paint on, even the sunshine dosent stop you needing the polyfilla does it lol...I hope you can enjoy your little corner of heaven over the weekend...have a wonderful one

Stunning garden Mina x
I do love lots of colour. I need to do my pots. I have plenty of shrubs but need to now add instant colour to my garden.
The weather goes from one extreme to the other, lol.

Everyone needs a little oasis and yours is just what the doctor ordered! I love it. I have a little corner of my back porch with a lounge chair and it is surrounded by all my favorite house plants and some flowers and of course I have to have my fairy and butterfly images here and there inside my plants!
