Enjoying Your Garden This Autumn

*Collaborative Post

Can you believe that the summer has been and gone already? All that time spent making sure that you have a picturesque garden that’s the envy of your neighbours and already the leaves are starting to turn from green to rust.

There are plenty of ways to make sure that your garden can be just as beautiful and enjoyable in Autumn.

Making the Most of Your Small Garden

Most new houses now come with very small gardens and ours is no exception. It was the compromise we made to have a house we wanted in the right location but it is still something I struggle with even 6 years on.

One day, when I win the lottery eh! So, for now, I have had to learn how to make the most of our small garden all whilst keeping it functional for all of us as a family.  Continue reading “Making the Most of Your Small Garden”
