Waaaay back in April, you might remember I posted about giving my front garden a makeover, courtesy of Plant Me Now, who guided me in choosing lots of lovely plants and a bit of expert advice about how to best make use of the space in my front garden.
Well, after some fervent planting and lots of watering, THIS is how it turned out.
It makes a real difference to the space at the front of the house – as you leave, you catch a waft of lavender and get to admire your flowers. And it’s nice to see people walk past and admire them – I caught a lovely old gent smiling into the garden, just a few days ago.
It’s even lovely from the inside of the house. As our living room looks straight out onto the street the view is now softened by the greenery, and if you sit in the chair next to the window you can watch the bumble-bees pootling across the lavender.
And bin update – the lavender has actually made it its mission to hide the bins. So happy!
