We have been blessed with some gorgeous weather lately, and Summer has definitely arrived! This weekend it’s been all about the garden for us. On Saturday I went to Gardener’s World Live, which was fab and full of garden inspiration and yesterday we spent the entire day outside. This week’s guest post is all about enjoying your garden and making the most of it.
Yay it’s June! The days are getting longer and the weather is improving, telling us that Summer is very nearly here. This week it is all about activities and crafts you can do with the kids outside, just in case you need anymore excuses to Get in Your Garden!
As an amateur preserve maker, I seem to have a lot of these jam jar lids kicking around. I hate throwing things away so I kept hold of them hoping that one day inspiration would find me and give me an idea of what to do with them. Well inspiration struck and I decided to make these cute up cycled jam jar lid flowers to decorate a boring piece of fence in our garden.
Part of the enjoyment for me of being in my garden, is the fact that I can get closer to nature. I love hearing the birds sing, and seeing the friendly Robin when i’m digging in the dirt. Birdhouses can help encourage birds into your garden, provide an important function and also look incredibly pretty.
Yay it’s officially the first day of Spring! Spring is my favourite season, and for me it signals the start of being able to spend more time in my garden. Today also marks the first day of my new guest post series, Get in Your Garden! which will include weekly guest posts to encourage you to get outside and enjoy your garden as much as I enjoy mine.
