Yes…you read right…I’m ACTUALLY gardening and everything, (no really!) I have Hunter Wellies, a parka and a new found enthusiasm to get my fingernails dirty…normally I have a real dislike for dirty fingernails and find it a sign of lack of hygiene, or maybe it’s because I did one day of potatoe picking for my father on the farm way back in 1987, (ugh, I shudder at that thought of one day of hell) – but this silly fear was thrown beyond my laurel bushes today, for I…Lizzie Owen…buried my hands in mud to create the garden of my dreams, with a little help from my gardening pal and Garden Designer Linda Wadley.
Last year I designed and had built a garden room – I love this room, it’s incredibly peaceful and I’m starting to fill the space with lots of quirky bits and pieces, (I’ll save this for a later post once it’s finished), but the actual building was kind of floating and needed something to bring it together. Enter Linda – a fairly new friend of 3 years via a playgroup called Cheeky Monkeys…I know…random. But she wasn’t a Garden Designer then, which is why I was happily surprised to learn so much from her – she really knows her stuff, and now the space around the building looks complete…well almost – it just needs to grow.
OK…I KNOW you can’t see some of the plants too well just yet, but apparently they’ll look AMAZING by Spring next year, hence the title! You’ll be calling me Green Fingers Owen before you know it…actually…no, please don’t – that doesn’t sound too nice!!
