I always said to myself that when I buy my first house, I would want it to have a big garden. A garden big enough to have a trampoline for the kids, a grass area to sunbathe and a pond filled with carps as well as a vegetable patch and possibly a little orchard for cherry and plum trees. Slightly ambition when you live in London. Surprise surprise, that didn’t happen. My townhouse comes with a teeny tiny garden. A garden that wouldn’t even fit a trampoline let alone a pond and an orchard. I was saddened by that because my dreams were crushed. Why did I buy my house you might be asking – to cut a long story short, I didn’t really have a choice. I wanted to get onto the property ladder so I bought my council house that I am living in. I’m hoping to relocate in a few years to a property with more green space.
But in the meantime, I am going to make the most with what I have.
Welcome to this blog series: “My Teeny Tiny Garden“
I measured my garden today just to see how big it actually is. My garden spans a whopping 5m x 4m! Last summer I renovated my little garden. Pre-renovation it was a mess. It became a dumping ground for all manner of things … buckets, bottles, planks of wood, broken scooters and chairs. I hated it and I was pretty embarassed by it. With the help of a dear friend … we transformed it into a peaceful haven. Simplicity and calm. I love it now and I am super excited to bring it to life.
So now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s time to start bringing my garden to life. I hope you will follow me on my 2021 gardening adventures.
Waiting For The Chill To Pass
Why So Windy?
