TJ and I haven't had much experience with gardening.
Our first year together we lived in a flat with no garden. Our second year we lived in a lovely village but due to our commuting times we had hardly any chance to make the most of it. Our third year was taken up with a relocation and preparation for our wedding. Our fourth year was blighted by my pregnancy and Hyperemesis. So this year we've really gone all out to try and make our garden feel like "ours".
We planted roses…
so full of promise.
We added lavender… lots of it!
My dad gave us lots of bits from his garden, most of which I cannot name…
but it all really helps brighten up the garden.
If we've done so well this year, despite all the funny weather and our lack of experience, then I cannot wait to see how much more we might get from the garden in future years. Isn't it exciting!
