Sunshine garden

This weekend the sun was out for most of the UK, and all of our pot plants were loving the heat. I was playing around with some photos and love the colours that pop in the above picture. 

The Boy and I live in a rented accommodation so we don't really want to spend time (and money) on making the flower beds look pretty, only to leave them when it is time to move on. So, we decided to fill our decking with lots of different plants and pots and try our hand at being green fingered. I think it is working out nicely, hope you all had a great weekend.

  1. Aww. What a cute little garden set up you have there!
    I wanted to have a herb garden, so I started growing some about 6 months ago - maybe longer, and because I left them outside at night the possums came and ate them!!! :( So sad.
    Good luck with yours, I doubt you will need it though, hehe.
